Be Inspired Card

Hope everyone is having a fantastic Sunday and Happy Father's Day to all the wonderful dads out there!

We went to a brunch with my in-laws this morning and then my hubby and I went to visit my dad at Rose Hill (cemetery) afterward. I probably won't have time to do anymore crafting later because we are going out for dinner. I also need to help my hubby with some of his stuff.

Anyway, on to this card. This is an inspired card from Lin, with this card. She is one of the very talented win-a-day contest winners. I actually don't know why I like this particular one. I guess it just stands out for me and maybe the Hibiscus Style flower? I do like this stamp a lot.

I wasn't thinking about combining any challenges for this card but in the end, it fits a couple of others besides Hero Arts. Here are the challenges this card is for.

1. Hero Arts: Create a project with any win-a-day contest winners creations.
2. Crafty Creations: What's in your garden.
3. Simon Says Stamps: it's their first anniversary and the theme this week is to create a birthday card.
4. Cafe Mojo: Flowers.
5. If the Shoe Fits: a celebration card.




Supplies:
Stamps: HA Hibiscus Style, HA Carnival Happy Birthday, HA clear design Birthday Messages, Autumn Leaves flourishes
Paper: DCWV pattern paper, Recollection cardstock, The Paper Company cardstock
Ink: Brilliance moonlight white and coffee bean
Embellishment: Queen and Co. pearls
Tools: Martha Stewart lace border punch, Fern leave punch, Sakura glitter pen, Le Plume Markers, heating gun
Others: Clear embossing powder, glitter embossing powder
