DT Crafty Catz - Inspirational Photo

Happy Friday! That means the weekend is approaching and even better it's time for a new challenge at Crafty Catz.

It's my first time hosting the challenge for Crafty Catz and I'm trying my best not to klutz it up lol. Anyway this week it's been Guy Fawkes night in the UK (November 5th) and that means lots of celebrations with Fireworks, (for those of you who don't know about Guy Fawkes do google him, it's quite bizarre in a way that we celebrate this and how), and so I thought I'd make this week's challenge to use a photo of fireworks to inspire you. So this week's challenge is an


Now don't run away screaming lol, it's not hard we just want you to take some inspiration from this picture and use it to make your card, that could be the colours, the theme, the picture, the sparkle, the celebration....the list is endless and limited only by your own imagination.

We have an absolutely fabulous sponsor this week, the oh so talented Krista Smith from

Is offering 2 images of their own choice to the winner!!

How cool is that? I lurve her images and so was delighted that she also very kindly provided us with images for the design team to use...'drool'.

So from the photo I toll inspiration from the colours, the glitz and sparkle and the whole wow factor of fireworks and I came up with this

The image I chose is Starla, I thought she was perfect for this, isn't she wonderfully over the top?

She's coloured with my Copics as usual, there are just too many colours here for me to list lol.

I used some gold stickles on the centre of the daisy to bling it up a bit.
Papers have been edged with DI in Chipped Sapphire and sewn with top stitch thread in blue.

The background scene is a digi from Make it Crafty.

Papers - Bildmalarna, Welcome - Red Stripes from Dies to Die For
Stamps used are from Whimsy as well as the matching dies.
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Film Strip Ribbon from L&LC
All other embellishments from stash.

I hope you like it, do come check out what the DT have made, they have really rocked out this theme, and then have a go yourself, we would love to see yur creations :) xx
