Inspired


Right well let's get down to this weeks challenge and what a challenge this is going to be, as we have a very special guest joining us this week, that being Simon Says Stamp's very own Kristina Werner.
Kristina is super inspiring, sweet as can be and uber talented...Kristina, if you don't know by now is the one that chooses what goes into the Monthly Card Kits that Simon Says sell and not just that she has designed stamp sets that can be purchased through the card kit and also in the store separately, just recently she has designed exclusive dies that well lets face it are just awesome, the design team shared many creations using these Dies as seen in last weeks challenge...
This week Kristina is sharing an inspiration photo of her gorgeous Kitty, Mannie, we hope you will all have fun playing along with Kristina and the Design Team

KRISTINA'S INSPIRATION 



The design team are sharing creations using Basic Grey products
you don't have to use them to join in but we would love to see them used if you have them...
As always Heidi will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!


Now to my Card.

I really wanted my card to be influenced by Kristina style rather than just use the colour board. The cards on her blog seemed to have quite a bit of Kraft card and banners and there's quite a few pics of the cutest puddy cat too.
Which made me determined to use a Penny Black cat and this one is called Purr-Message which is a cling stamp. The Basic Grey papers I've used PB&J, which is perfect for colours of the board. and the flower mat which I stitched down (Kirstina does quite a bit of sewing too) I cut out the flowers to decorate my card.
Then it was a case of making banners to go across the card, which I used a square punch to make the shape. I really pleased how the card turned out, a bit different for me.
