Merry Monday #280 - Inspiration Photo

Hello friends.  This week's challenge at Merry Monday is being hosted by Kelly, and she has a wonderful inspiration photo to inspire you this week!


Isn't that just a lovely table setting?!  I was inspired by the stars, the elegance, the shine from the candles, and the night time color outside the windows, and came up with this card using an older SU! set called The Sounding Joy (retired).


I stamped and embossed the script star and then die cut the star shape from a Gina Marie Designs die.  I used gold mirror cardstock to die cut a larger star to put behind the stamped star and also die cut a few smaller stars from gold too.  My DSP is from SU!'s Merry Music and I also layered a piece of gold mirror cardstock behind that and then adhered to a white card base.  My "joy" die cut is from WPlus9's Hand Lettered Holidays and the stars were pop dotted for some dimension.  A simple piece of black bakers twine (SU!) finished off my card.

How will YOU be inspired by this week's photo??  We can't wait to see what you come up with!  Check out what the rest of the DT came up with this week and then play along with us right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
