Winners will be announced Monday June 17th at Jo's Scrap Shack 

I'm excited to see what you create with this photo!

My first inspiration came from the geometry of the side table, so I have matted different areas of my card.  My base is white card stock with the first layer of yellow paper. 

The next inspiration comes from the padded room divider.  I embossed some yellow paper using a Fiskars texture plate "Bubbles".  I then rubbed the raised area with Stampin Up Encore gold ink. This piece was then matted with black card. The sentiment stamp comes from Close to My Heart - "For Every Occasion".

I was next inspired by the black and yellow throw pillow.  I  stamped the flowers from Darkroom Door's "Full Bloom Vol 2" onto my piece of yellow scrap.  I then inked the edges and matted it onto black CS.  This was then mounted on foam tape and positioned on the card front.

My simple card is going to be used as a sympathy card for a family friends who lost their sister in a tragic accident recently.

    Loved your card. Also enjoyed reading how you interpreted the different aspects in the inspiration photo, to incorporate into your card. That was very helpful to me, as all I thought about when I started my card, was the colors. Maybe I can do this thought process next time. TFS
