Get Inspired - Sunset

Hi Everyone, happy Saturday!  Its my turn to contribute for our Get Inspired column over at MFP Speedy TV!

My card this week uses inspiration provided by MariLynn last week, a lovely photo of a sunset over the Mississippi:

I love the silhouette of the greenery against the lovely colours of the sky.  Here is what I came up with:

I started by blending three colours onto a white panel and matting it with black and attaching it to the card.  The image was then stamped and embossed on vellum, which was adhered to the panel. Some ribbon and some rhinestones finished the card off.   

I love how quickly the card came together.  Once I saw the sky I knew exactly what I wanted to do.  I thought about using a stamp that more closely resembled the vegetation from the photo, but I really love the image from September's mini set called "Nature's Brushstrokes" and think it works well on this card.  I paired it with the sentiment from a set called "Glad Glads". 

Are you inspired to create? If so please link your creation below, we would love to see what you come up with!

As I mentioned before, this post is part of the  Get Inspired page at MFP Speedy TV .   If you are not a member of MFP Speedy TV, its a free social networking site focused on stamping and card making with MFP stamps.  In addition to our column you will find lots of inspiration, including other informative columns on a daily basis, so why not click over and see what you are missing!

Thats it for me this week! Next week I will have some new inspiration for you, see you then! :)
