Papercraft Star Challenge 156

Hello, hello, hello!  I hope every one is having a great week so far.  This week over at the Papercraft Star we have a fun inspiration for you!  Looking at the photo I was inspired by the many colors.  Look at all those bright colors!

Ideas for your inspiration:

Favorite book
Your favorite story

My card was created for a friend who was hosting a challenge to create a card using her pintrest boards.  Well I love pinterest so I was IN!  I found a card that had multiple colors in it like our inspiration photo and set off creating it.  I scrap lifted a card made by Kristine Davidson.  She makes some wonderful cards and layouts.  You can find the card I recreated using what I had on hand here.

I started off using a paper bag card stock as a base and matted some patterned paper from Webster's Pages.  Then I used a crimper to corrugated a scrap of the paper bag card stock and tied some twine around it.  The stamped note is from Stamper's Best and the butterflies are a retired Stampin Up set.  I sewed around the colorful patterned paper and used a sentiment from Verve.  This card was so fun to make!  Big thank you to Kristine for the added inspiration and to Laura for the great challenge idea.  Our Design team has some really stunner projects so I hope you stop by the Papercraft Star to take a look!  How does our photo inspire you?  I'd love to see!
