C4C 251 Photo Inspired

Good morning friends!

It's Saturday, and that means a new challenge at the Crazy4Challenges blog!  Helen Cryer is our hostess for August, and she has a photo challenge for us this week.  Here is a look at the photo:

And here is the card I made using the photo as inspiration. The colours on my card are softer in real life. 

This is a birthday card for my parents to give our daughter, as she loves roses.

You KNOW I had to make a pop up card, ha ha.  I used the same stamps, dies and colours as on the front of the card and the Lorna Label Pop Up by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs. Yes, I know I use the Lorna Label Pop Up a lot. A LOT. But it's such a great base die and you can use that large pop up bump in so many ways.

I hope you will stop by the C4C Challenge Blog and see what the Crazies came up with for this challenge. There's sure to be lots of inspiration. This is Helen's last challenge, as she is stepping down from the Design Team to spend more time with her family. Her amazing colour choices and eye for design will be missed by all the Crazies.

Donna Wright has been Guest Designing all month and she has agreed to join the Design Team so we will be seeing her fun projects each week now. You can find her blog HERE.
