EYE adore you....

Good afternoon! Winter has finally shown up...with a vengeance! Holy frozen monkey balls Batman! It's COLD!!! We even had some snow fall last night: about 5 minutes worth. But that was fine by me. Now it's super windy. Kind of reminds me of Illinois, where I grew up. (There is a reason they call Chicago the "Windy City"!)

So on to today's card. I haven't played along with Mojo Monday's #277 in a while so I figured it was time. I'm also using the Be Inspired #20 photo from The Alley Way Stamps.

Here is the inside of the card:

Here are the challenges:

I was inspired by the colors in the picture: raspberry, pink, vanilla, kraft. My main panel was a happy accident. I originally wanted the outlined frames lined up and going off the same edge and the middle frame going off the other side. But as I was just about to stamp the last frame, my dog started barking his head off at somebody knocking at the door. I quickly stamp it and rushed to see who was there. Turned out it was only a REALLY pushy solicitor. (I know it's his job and all, but there is a fine line between being a slight inconvenience to a major butt-hole. He crossed that line. Excuse my french. I try to keep my blog PG13. Most times it works, others, not so much!) Anyway, when I went back to my card, that's when I realized I stamped it on the wrong side. GRRR! Luckily, the more I looked at it, the more I liked it - happy accident!

Anyway, that's my story and I'm sticking with it! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a great rest of the day, sans pushy solicitors!
