Papertrey July 2017 Blog Hop Challenge

Most everyone who follows Nichole's blog knows that the 25th of every month is Papertrey Ink's Blog Hop Challenge. We always get such interesting images to inspire us, and this month's vignette is no exception. Look at the soft blues, grays and a touch of antique gold in this beauty.

Let's just say I incorporated some of what I saw and went with it. 
Linda E shared her response on the Forum when the question was posted, Where do you find inspiration? "Someone made a suggestion to me a long time ago to find something that I liked; it could be a card, a photo, fabric, a pillow, whatever. Study your object for a few minutes, then put it away. 

Without looking at your inspiration piece again, go make a card based on your observations. I use this suggestion quite a bit." 

This is what I created without staring at the image on my iPad like I usually do. 





Thanks for stopping by, and I really do appreciate your comments.
