    Default VC Challenge #1 "Inspiration is All Around Us"

    I challenge you to look around your house and be inspired! For this challenge, find something in your home....(anything but scrapbooking magazines or books) and create a layout or card from something on it that inspired you. (i.e. you could find a can of hairspray and like the label, you could find a package of macaroni and cheese and like the color pallette, or the pattern on your couch, the shape of your lamp, etc.)

    Here is an example of what I'm talking about:
    My inspiration came from a throw pillow on my bed. I saw the design on it and thought, "that would be such a pretty card", and I loved the colors (obviously, or I wouldn't have bought it for my bed eh?! LOL) so I stuck with those too.
    Original inspiration:


    My card:

    The design was cut from Home Accents out of acrylic. Then I painted it silver with craft paint and let dry.
    The inside says "to you"


    I can't wait to see what you can come up with!! I will be posting a peak of what the winner gets in a little bit....

    Your layout/card must be completed by Monday the 10th midnight PST. Please post a picture of your layout here.

    Great idea Charys! I love that pillow, and your card rocks. I like how you put "to you" in the inside.

    Very creative to get inspiration from the shirt! Cute!
