The Heart Desires - Inking About You


I''m running tight on this post! I just found a brand new challenge - it's their very first challenge and I had to play along!!  Here's how it works....,
Each month they will provide an inspiration picture and identify at least 3 elements to choose from for your project.  You can use one, two, or all of the elements.  This month you're able to choose from a luscious color palette, sea creatures or geometric shapes.  Whatever you choose, we know you'll wow us!

Sound interesting?  There's only one more day to play but you know there will be another challenge for us before we know it!  You can get all the details here at The Heart Desires.  Just click on the challenge tab at the top of the page! 
Well I know what this heart desires!  I loved the color palate and the fun sea creatures in the inspiration photo.  Not too many geometric shapes here unless you count the repeated fish scales on the pretty Scalloped Tag Layer on my tag.

The cute little octopus and sentiment are from the Reverse Confetti Seaside Stamp Set!  The sentiment is so punny!  LOL!  All the dies are from Reverse Confetti including the tag topper and scalloped circle the sentiment is on.

I stamped the octopus in bright orange to compliment the colors in the Basic Grey pattern paper - these are from the Adrift collection.
The Double Edge Scallop Border from Reverse Confetti is one of my favorites.  I think it's so clever that it's double sided - there is a small scallop pattern on one side, and a large scallop pattern on the other. 

Sometimes I think elements look like they're floating - to make them look more grounded I use twine tied to the base of the card.   For this project I used Twinery Mandarin Twine.
Ok .. .that's all folks!  Off to enter the challenge before it closes!  So fun to be part of something new!  I'm so glad I saw this on Kate Lorenzini's blog.   Wait til you check out their design team - I can about guarantee you'll know one of the ladies - they're all rock stars!

Jeanne, first off, thank you for joining us for our first THD challenge. SO awesome to have your talent grace our page. Second, thanks for the shout-out; as always you are such a kind friend promoting and giving props. And last but certainly not least, your card totally rocks. It is 100% Jeanne, and I LOVE it, all the elements and the pop of the tag. You are my pattern mixing partner in crime. :) Hugs to you and I will try to be in touch more this month.
