Inspiration Monday

Monday again! My weeks are usually very busy with Doctor Appointments, meetings with my apartment management, and taking care of my little family that these days all seem to fly by so quickly. (Sort of thankful for that.)

Well, with it being Monday I have actually made it on time for another wonderful Inspirati♥n Monday post! This week I have decided to join in on all the fun the at two Challenge blogs. The first I would like to mention is one that I have actually won at, and came very close to being apart of her Design Team. Lets give a big warm welcome to Stamptacular Sunday Challenge! You can visit her site at:
and you can visit the challenge that I am playing along with here:

As usual though, I have a copy of the challenge here for you, but I really do hope that you will stop by her blog to take a peek at all of the wonderful inspiration she and her design team have!
Challenge #148: Seeing SPOTS!
This week’s challenge is going to be so much fun! We can’t wait to see what you create!
This week's challenge is a…
“Seeing SPOTS!”

For this weeks challenge you will create a card with spots/polka dots on it! They can be anywhere or as few or as many as you wish, as long as we can see them when you’re finished!
I didn't do much stamping on the card that I made but lucky for me there isn't a limit to the stamping that needs to be done on the cards that you enter into her challenges, there just needs to be some stamping. =) On my card, I had a purple chip-board flourish that I decided to stamp with a pin point polka dot in shy peach. It turned out very cute. This is one of my favorite cards that I have ever made! The colors just really flow together.

The second challenge blog that I am joining this week is the CPS (Card Positioning Systems) Challenge Blog. They have a very lovely sketch that they would like you to use in some way in your card. Its a very simple design, I don't normally go for the tiled look on cards but something about this layout got my creative juices flowing! You can visit this challenge at:
But for the sake of the challenge I have borrowed the sketch image from CPS. (THIS IS NOT MY SKETCH AND I TAKE NO CREDIT FOR THE SKETCH.)

Alright now, here is the moment that you have all been waiting for, here is the card that I made for these two challenges! *Again, this is by far one of my all time favorite cards that I have ever made!
For this card I chose to use a pre-cut design for the quote, I chose Serenity because when I look at this card it reminds me of all that I have over come these past few months, it makes me feel calm and at peace with the dark tones and easy flow design. It just seem right to put Serenity on this card. (I plan to make this card part of my decor around my craft desk, it really does me good to see it.)

Amazing isn't it!!!!! Now I'm going to post a digital Scrapbook Layout of the card at different angles so you can see the detail a bit better and see how all of the layers word and mingle!
Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to come back soon for more challenges and crafty updates!
