My Creative Time Sketch and Photo Inspiration Challenge

Today's challenge is from My Creative Time. {see sketch and photo inspiration below} I love the color combo in the photo and the banners on the sketch. Fun challenge!! The rectangle frames are a staple for card making and I used the two larger ones for this card. The small rectangle is the chalkboard die from the Love To Learn set, and the 'love' word die is from the Family is Everything set.

You can see in the photo the beaded pillow with "love" across it. The beads inspired the cork paper for my project. I really like the texture of the cork paper and it sort of mimics the look of the beads, I think. To make my banners, I got creative with some of the MCT dies. For the largest banner, I used the chevron dies, and for the two smaller banners I used the Vintage Label banner and Chocolate Greetings flag cutting them apart to stretch them longer as my paper scraps were too short. Sneaky, heh? ;)
