Paper Sweeties Inspiration - September

Well its back to school for my little girl today.  She has grown up over this last year and now she is off into a different class.  I feel so proud of her!  Good luck today my little flip flop (my pet name for her).

I also have some lovely news I am guest designing for Paper Sweeties for their Inspiration Challenge.

 Here is the lovely picture for you to be inspired by this month.
Also I think I maybe a little colour blind as when I downloaded the above image on my Ipad it looked red but the flowers are PINK!!! Oops! 
and here are my creations:

For this card I was inspired by the colours, the little mason jar filled with flowers and the chalk.

A great inspiration board for your back to school cards.

This was the first card I made and my daughter said she didn't like it!!

I used the stamp set called Coffee, yes please to create the little vase along with the matching sweet cut dies and used the chalkboard technique.

I then added some of the gorgeous sequins from Paper Sweeties called Cupcake.

The sequins are the pretties I have ever seen and are so sparkly.

This is a second card I created.  For this one I used the same stamp set but used the little cup instead for my vase of flowers.

I again finished with some of the beautiful sequins.

I hope you can stop by and check out the website at Paper Sweeties for more lovely inspiration and gorgeous craft supplies.

I feel in love as soon as I saw my pretty pink envelope arrive in the mail.

Have a lovely day and good luck to all returning to school today.
