FYI – Celebration of Blue

It is time for another For Your Inspiration challenge. Check out the latest challenge -> FYI33.

This photo makes me smile – I think it is the beautiful sky and green grass. What catches my eye first are the tall, narrow trees. I definitely wanted those represented in my card.

Since the trees were my first requirement, I started there. I searched for a composition that utilized vertical strips. I ended up using a sketch I found at 2Peas (saturday sketch).

Next I looked for a label/frame that reminded me of the building in the inspiration photo. I tried many things, but finally settled on the Celebrations set from Papertrey.

My final touches were to emboss the background with stripes and add ribbon and buttons.

Thanks for taking a peek!
