Be Inspired!

This week over at the Wags n' Whiskers blog the challenge is to "Be Inspired". You have to choose someone who inspires you and make a card from this inspiration. Here's my card, I have chosen Debby from "A Scrapjourney" as my inspiration...

Debby's cards and scrapbook layouts are just beautiful, I love her style of cardmaking. She always uses 3D to bring her images alive, her colouring is fabulous and her layouts are always so varied. Thanks Debby for sharing your beautiful creations with us all!

I have to say, I rather like my little card, although it took ages to do colouring and cutting all those bits out! I tend not to make many cards like this as they take so long to do, but I must admit the 3D effect definately brings the three little characters to life! Here's the recipe...

Stamp - Furry Friends, Wags n' Whiskers
Colouring - Promarkers
Paper - Stampin' Up, Tea Party
Flowers - Woodware daisy punch, Craftwork Cards Card Candy
Ribbon - Artemio
Decorative Corner - Martha Stewart Corner Punch

Well, I have two birthday cards to make before the weekend so off to get started - or I might just crash out on the sofa and watch The Hairy Bikers! Hope you have a lovely evening whatever you do!

Cette carte est très jolie!!! J'aime beaucoup quand il a du relief! J'ai vu que ton animal de compagnie est une chat, le mien c'est un lapin qui s'apelle Panpan comme dans le dessin animé "Bamby" de Wald Disney! Il est trop cute même s'il fait plein de bêtise!!! Sur mon blog il y a quelques photos de ma canaille! Bisous et bonne continuation
