I am sick as a dog this morning, ugh! This terrible head cold actually started creeping up on me Friday and has only gotten worse since then. Yesterday at work was down right miserable and I am SO thankful to have today off and hopefully get over this bug.
Before I grab another NyQuil and head back to bed, I wanted to share the card I made for the new challenge over at Some Odd Girl this past week. It's an art inspiration challenge using a great 1902 print by Alphonse Mucha called the Thistle from the Sands. Maybe the colors will inspire you or some of the design elements... with the release of the three new Nouveau girls we just had to do it. :)
I used the lovely Grow for my art inspired card and pulled out some old flourish stamps that hadn't seen ink in years because I thought they would make for a cool background for her.
Okey dokey, so now it's time for you to get inspired! You've got until November 15th to enter a card for a chance at winning a fab prize and while you don't have to use a SOG image to qualify, you do get an extra name in the hat come drawing time if you do.
Good luck! !
