First Ever Pinspired Challenge!

There's a new challenge in town and it's an exciting one! It's called the Pinspired Challenge. Designers are given an image found on Pinterest and asked to create a card using the image as inspiration. This challenge is right up my alley!

Speaking of alley, the prize for the winner is a stamp set from Alley Way Stamps. Pretty fun. I am throwing my hat in the ring! (Or should I say "I'm throwing my hat in the alley? Hee hee)

Here is my card  ...




... which is inspired by this image:


As you can see, I drew inspiration from many elements of this photo. The colors, the circles, the lollipops and the birthday cake elements in the "Pinspiration" image are also in my card.

Products used include:
Stamps: A. Jillian Vance Design
Lollipop brads: Eyelet Outlet
Embossing powder: Stampendous
Cake image: Silhouette Studio

I love the bright, neon colors when paired with black. They really seem to pop against the black, creating a nice contrast and visually interesting design. I really like the outcome of this card. I look forward to playing in more of these Pinspiration Challenges. You can play, too! Just create a card inspired by the image above, post it to your blog and link it to the challenge blog post here.
