Get inspired with Crafts and Me

I have some important news about Crafts and Me challenges...we are going weekly!! How great is that. Yep now we have more DT one week will be the rubber team and the next will be the digi team. I am so excited about all the new members to this great team and can not wait to see what they make.
Now to start off it us rubber ladies and the theme has been chosen by the lovely Vicky. She has gone for something a bit different.
You have 'Photo Inspiration' as your challenge this week but we also want to see 'Texture' as well. There are 2 photo's for you to choose from or you can use just one or both as your inspiration the choice is yours...but please make sure you add some texture as well.
The fabulous prize this week is from our sponsor 'Sweet Pea stamps' the lovely Lynette is offering the winner a $20 Gift Card.

For my card I took inspiration from the first photo which is of a white room with blues and greens and touches of gold. I have got the texture as the card blank is foil embossed and the borders are raised. The stunning image is one of the new Sarah Burrier range at Crafts and Me she is called Turn to Hesed and is available HERE. I have coloured her with a mix of pro markers and sakura stardust pens so she sparkles.



I am entering this card for the following challenges:
Paper Sundays - Keep it simple
Cupcake craft - Up in the air with optional green
Magical Monday - Spring colours
Paper crafting journey - Things with wings
