They started something new this year at the Ustamp Spring Soiree, an inspiration challenge.  For those of you who are new to challenges, basically it's when you are inspired by something other than an actual stamping project, and you create a stamping project from that inspiration.  Could be a picture from a magazine, a color combination, clothing or anything that get's your creativity flowing.  This challenge was given by Jennifer Picard from British Columbia and basically it was a picture of a baby standing in a crib, with a large giraffe standing by.

Here's what I came up with:

Sweet Pea Card

The crib bars inspired me to use a striped paper and the baby to make a baby card.  I didn't really feel like a giraffe so I went with a deer from the Forest Friends stamp set instead.  To make him baby friendly I added a little pink to him with a blender pen and a Regal Rose ink pad.  The "Sweet Pea" greeting comes frm the Little Angel stamp set and to add a little extra color to it, I traced it with the Regal Rose marker after stamping it in Basic Gray. 

For embellishments I added the Regal Rose grosgrain ribbon and some Pretty in Pink brads.  Of course I had to add a little scallop trim along the top and a score line just to complete the look I was going for.

I think the deer works well as babies are so dear. Cindy, is the scallop trim from Stampin Up. I like it.

What a good use of color it's soft and eye catching with the striped dsp. Thankyou for explaining the pictures as use for the inspiration I was trying to figure out why the pictures. Hugs and happy stamping Lori
