Lily Pad Inspirational Challenge for May

This week we're being inspired by anything we've seen on Lily Pad Cards: posts, entries for challenges, links, and so on.  I was inspired by Deborah's post here where she encourages us to use pre-made pieces, like chipboard or stickers, when we need a quick card.  Here is Deborah's card:


She used a chipboard dog.  Here is mine, using a K&Company Grand Adhesions bird sticker:


supplies: kraft cardstock, dps from My Mind's Eye Mabel paper pad, TPC Studio stamp from Vintage Birdcages cling set, Memories Artprint Brown, ink, K&Company Susan Winget Botanical Robin Grand Adhesion stickers, aqua pearls

It was a nice change of pace to use Deborah's card recipe and one of these lovely stickers - the card went together in minutes, and I like the way it turned out!  I hope this encourages YOU to use some of those impulse buys that we all make and then never use!  Please visit this week's Lily Pad Cards challenge, and you'll have a chance to win a gift certificate for $25.00 from Simon Says Stamp!  Just choose something that's inspired you anywhere on Lily Pad Cards, and create something.

  5. Beautiful, Lin! I love the soft colors and birds are one of my favs. If you hadn't said it was a sticker I would have thought you colored it in and cut it out. So so pretty:)
