Challenge 66 - Inspired by Janelle

Well...look at me! Two posts in one day!! If you'd like to take a peek at my Zentangle inspired art...scroll on down to the previous post!

This week the challenge from Susan at Simplicity is to visit Janelle blog and create a card that's inspired from something found there.  I found a beautiful card (here) that was several layers and adapted it to a one layer card.  I love the use of the doily and the colors Janelle used.  If you've never visited Janelle's blog, you should take a moment to do so, especially if you're feeling down and need an uplifting boost to your spirits. Janelle is going through some tough times right now, but her faith keeps her strong. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Janelle while you continue this journey in uncharted territories!


As you can see, I didn't exactly follow the colors on this first card...I got distracted and picked up the wrong pen (green rather than blue)....and once started I had to finish it. The "doily" is a new Flourishes stamp, and the cupcake is Hero Arts, I think.  The sentiment is also a Flourishes stamp.


So....I decided to give it one more try.  I used the pink and blue this time...and I love how this turned out.  Thanks for the inspiration, Janelle!

Thanks so much for popping by....I appreciate all your lovely comments!! Until next time...

♥ Hugs! ♥

Susan - both these are just fabulous - that's the most wonderful flourish/doily stamp! I love the one with the cupcake!

Very beautiful cards. Wonderful versions of Janelle's card.

I agree with you that Janelle's blog is full of inspiration. I ended making two as well. It was rather challenging "flattening" some of her designs into an OLC but good fun.

Thanks for dropping by my last post and leaving such a lovely comment. Here's my OLW 66 entry if you're interested.

cheers,

I think I like this is green better than the blue. No, wait, I think the blue. It's beautiful whichever color! I love the way you stamped it a little off the page. A wonderful tribute to Janelle.

Beautiful cards, Susan. You color so beautifully. I LOVE the second card! :) Ann

Janelle said...

These are so beautiful, Susan. Can't decide which one I like better! Hmmm. It could be the cupcake one because you know how I like cupcakes. :) Seriously, both are wonderful -- your coloring is perfection.
