Surf Board Inspired Card

It is that time of the week when we are inspired by the incredibly fun pictures Shirley finds us for the MFPSpeedy TV Inspiration Challenge. Here are the latest treasures she has found for challenge #51 - Surf Boards:

These are some awfully fun and very inspiring pictures. I was inspired by the first surfboard and here is my creation:

I used the MFP Medallion Set which is one of very favorite sets with the very cool image you can layer and the fun sentiments. Inside my card I used the Hugs sentiment from the set but it also has some other very positive sayings such as "Love ya,"I am here for you," and "Think Happy Thoughts." The papers I used on the Medallion were Real Red and Summer Sun from SU! but they didn't match my Basic Grey dp very well so I toned them down with some Tim Holtz Tea Dye ink and a sponge. I added a gem in the middle, some Red Stickles, and some fun arrow gems from Close to My Heart.

Hope you are inspired by these pictures and come join us. You don't have to use an MFP image to play and the prize is a very pretty MFP daisy stamp from the Oopsy Daisy set. If you come play and mention in your post you were encouraged to play by me, I will put you in a drawing for an extra prize as well.

  11. Just beautiful. I love how rich the color tones are in the flower. The little arrows are just enough bling for some pizzazz and leave the focal point as the flower. This is fantastic!
