Get Inspired - Spring Blossoms (Week 2)

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

Today I am using a lovely photo provided by MariLynn last week:

 So pretty!  Here is what I came up with:

I enjoyed making this card, and I used two Mark's Finest Papers' sets: Works of Art for the image, and Glad Glads for the sentiment. Both sets are lovely.

I started with some spraying and masking for the background, and stamped and heat embossed the image.  I did use some white gel pen to highlight the blossoms even though its really hard to see. I also added some glitter pen.  I dry embossed some vellum to make it look like lace, and distressed the edges. The sentiment, ribbon, more glitter, and some rhinestones finished everything off. Similar techniques (minus the spraying) were used for the inside of the card. 

What do you think, are you feeling inspired? If you are we'd love it if you leave a link in the comments! :)

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 cardmaking with MFP stamps.  In additon 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!

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