Lots of Inspiration!


Hello!  It's time for another Divine Divas Inspiration Challenge and this gorgeous gift box from The Container Store is our inspiration today:)  I took the challenge quite literally this time and came up with this:



I made a little gift box:)  I was actually going to make a card too, but trying to figure out how to make that tulle bow took me FOREVAH!  It looks just like a net shower sponge doesn't it LOL?  I thought this dp from the Baisic Grey Green at Heart collection looked similar to the wrapping paper.  I didn't have any light pink tulle so I went with this fun hot pink color.  The sentiment is from the Your Next Stamp set Elegant Greetings which I just LOVE!  Make sure you check out what the other Divas created:



It's also time for another Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge, and this time it's an inspiration challenge as well!  There are actually 3 pictures that you can choose from which you can see HERE on the Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog.  I chose this pretty lady in yellow and this is what I came up with:


I was inspired by the colors, the pleated ribbon, and those yoyo flowers, so I pleated a ribbon border using some gorgeous Yellow Stripe Grosgrain and made a yoyo flower using some Swiss Dots Grosgrain Orange.  The layout comes from this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #77.  We hope you'll play along with us for your chance to win a gift certificate to the Really Reasonable Ribbon Store



Thank you so much for stopping by today!  I hope you're feeling inspired:)
