Paper Pretties Inspiration Challenge

Last week the Paper Pretties blog posted an inspiration challenge. I am not usually very good at these types of challenges but I thought I would give it a try.

Here is the inspiration piece:

It took me a while to decide what elements to use for my card...I wasn't sure if I wanted to go with a southwest theme or a quilt theme, but in the end I just went with the sure and safe color challenge. I picked teal, ruby and yellow out of the comforter as my color challenge.
Here is my card:
I was really happy with how this turned out. Sophia always puts a smile on my face! I used some new Jenni Bowlin designer paper that I got from Jacksonbelle Embellishments. The colors coordinated great with my cardstock. The border punch is from the Martha Stewart collection. The Sophia image is from Paper Pretties and the sentiment is from DRS Designs.

I hope you are all having a great week. I am leaving bright and early tomorrow morning to head to Minneapolis to meet up with Kisa and take the Copic certification class. I am SOOOOO excited. Then Friday is Scrapfest at Mall of America! Talk about all around fun! Saturday is Annabelle's birthday so we are going to do some family stuff around Minneapolis and then Sunday the long drive home. I won't have much time for internet or email so please don't think I'm ignoring you if I don't answer emails or visit your blogs until Sunday.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!
