Be Inspired #24

This is the first time I'm participating for Beate's Be Inspired Challenge, this is when she post something she finds on her blog and you find an inkspiration and translate it in a card. I've always been amazed how people interpret things they see and after months of admiring every ones work, I decided to try it. And I think i'll be back for more.

At first, I was going to combine all colors together and stamped on an acetate card but after looking at these glasses again, I wanted my card to be simple. And since I still have some left-overs of my Stampin' Up Love & Happiness rub-ons after I created my Pink Guitar, I decided to just stick with the simple card.

The card base is a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4" of Whisper White card stock and I stapled a same size of acetate and finished the card with Chocolate Chip satin ribbon. The sentiment is from PTI, Green Thumb stamp set.

What are these you asked? My 8-year old daughter Toni is been really helpful around the house lately. She offered to help me fold our laundry Tuesday, I told her that she can fold hers and just leave mine on the side. So last night I peek in her room and saw these on top of her bed. Our clothes sorted separately. Oh, you should see her room full of post-it notes to remember which one belongs to what....LOL!
