Con Inmenso Agradecimiento - Very Thankful

Hi everyone. I love the internet! I've loved getting to know so many talented designers from all over the US and around the world: Australia, New Zealand, Morocco, Pakistan, and Mexico, just to name a few.

Last month, Makeesha Byl, a Stampin' Up demonstrator from Australia asked if I would like to be a guest designer on her blog for the next several weeks. I was so thrilled to be asked. She offers weekly challenges (inspiration, color, and sketch).

Please join in this week for Inkspirations Inspiration Challenge #16 based on this photo of some very comfy-looking bedding. I was inspired by the colors and the heart designs. I'm not totally in love with my creation (I glued a piece down before I was ready...sigh), but I love the color combination.
Edited to Add: This was my attempt at the layout used in the current Stampin' Up catalog for the Out of the Box hostess level stamp set.


Card Ingredients
Stamps: Agradecimiento (SU!), Love You Much (SU!), Background Basics: Text Style II (PTI)
Paper: White (PTI), Real Red, Pink Pirouette, retired designer paper (SU!)
Ink: StazOn Jet Black
Tools: 2" circle punch (Fiskars), 1 3/8" circle punch, Modern Label Punch (SU!)
