The Heart Desires Challenge #5: 'tis the season


Welcome to the newest The Heart Desires Challenge...we're up to #5:


Seriously, what's not to love about that inspiration photo and all the delish colors?!  Any guesses on how it inspired me?



After being inspired by an awesome 826+ projects from the Fall Coffee Lovers blog hop, I was determined to use my stamps a bit differently.  Originally I wanted to be very literal in my translation of the photo.  Then I decided to use the solid circle in the Concord & 9th Let's Chat set as polka dots. 

I used the following Hero Arts Shadow inks:

Soft Pink  •  Mint Julep  •  Lemon Yellow  •  Soft Cantaloupe

I finished off the card with a panel of vellum with an embossed Neat and Tangled, Pumpkin Everything!  I couldn't resist adding a strip of glitz!

I can't wait to see how my teamies were inspired...check them out HERE.
