Creativity is a central source of meaning in our lives---when we are involved in it, we feel that we are living more fully than during the rest of life.

CSS Inspiration Hop

It is time for another Center Stage Alumni hop; this time it's an inspiration hop, and I'm sure you will find some inspiration along the way. If you arrived here from Joy's beautiful blog, you are on the right track. If you just happened by and would like to start the hop at the beginning head back over to Stamp TV where you will find a list of all of the participants.

Here is the piece we were challenged by Vicki to use for inspiration.


Here is the card I was inspired to make. The colors are the thing that really jumped out at me as well as all the texture.


I used Gina K Designs Pure Luxury papers in Fresh Asparagus, Sweet Corn, Turquoise Sea, Blue Denim, and White. The stamps are from the Gina K Designs sets Bold Blooms and Stately Flowers 1
I used Gina K Turquoise Sea, Fresh Asparagus, and Black Onyx inks. The ribbon and brads are from my stash.

Now head on over to Karen's place to see what she was inspired to create! Thanks for stopping by!
