Shopping Our Stash #150 - An Inspiration Picture!

Hello and good Tuesday morning to you all! We have a new challenge at SHOPPING OUR STASH, and this week it's an inspiration picture:

Here is what I came up with:

and the inside:

I loved the colors so that was what I used as my inspiration. You might have noticed that the front is slightly different than what is posted at Shopping Our Stash. I tried to make a really simple card and let the paper be the focus. I really did. But I kept looking at this and thinking it needed something more! So, I added the rhinestones at the very last second, and retook the picture. I like it sooooo much better! (Surprise, teammies!) LOL!

So, ready to get those creative juices flowing and play along? Of course you are! Just remember to link up your card or project at Shopping Our Stash so we can check you out! While there, make sure you visit the blogs of my teammies. It's amazing how we all pulled from different things about the inspiration picture and created such different cards! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you get the chance to play along!

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
