Inkspirational Challege - Photo Inspiration

Good Morning everyone!  Well, after a day of freezing rain/rain yesterday, it's a lovely sunny day today.  Hoping that it melts some more of the snow we still have around.  I hope you are all have a lovely Easter weekend.  My son is excited about the Easter Bunny visiting tomorrow.  My husband, not so much.  This year his birthday falls on Easter Sunday.  He's feeling a little ripped off.  LOL.  But I will make him brunch and dinner and cake and there will be presents just for him.  :-)  Anyway, we have a great challenge starting today over at Inkspirational!  It's a photo inspiration challenge this time and I just love the picture that was chosen.  Check it out....

Cool, right?!  I decided to use the colours and the weather theme for my card.  Take a look....

This is going to be my husbands birthday card.  Cause, he is the sunshine on a cloudy day.  :-)  This is how I made it....I die cut several clouds (Paper Smooches, Cute Clouds) from white and grey papers.  Once I had figured out the layout I stamped my sun (Paper Smooches, Eco Friendly set) and coloured it in with my Spectrum Noir markers.  Then I glued my clouds down.  I stamped my sentiment (STAMPlorations, Fond Expressions 2 set) in black.  I love how this turned out.  Inside I stamped Happy Birthday.

I hope you'll pop on by the blog and check out the other awesome projects by the DT.  We'd love for you to play along with us!

Have a fantastic weekend and thanks for stopping by!

  1. This is a really nice card and I think of spring because of the sun peeking out from the clouds

  2. Love the different colour clouds and then the pop of sun. Great card for hubby x

  3. Love your take on that inspiration picture! Great sentiment, too!

  4. Fantastic card! The layered clouds look great against the bright sun. And that sentiment could not be more perfect for this card!
    Also, I notice that I have missed your birthday! Regardless, I hope it was a grand! It seems you and your husband have very close birthdays. Hopefully you were able to do something fun to celebrate!

  5. What a lovely sentiment to put on a birthday card for your hubby! Just love your composition on this one. All those paper clouds in different shades makes such a statement, and that sun peeping out is so uplifting! Thanks so much for joining us at CASology this week!

  6. I love the variety of colors you used for the clouds - terrific scene & great sentiment! Thank you for joining us at the CASology challenge this week, Kim!

  7. First, belated Happy Birthday to that charming husband of yours! Hope he enjoyed all the spoiling and pampering you had planned for him: brunch, a special dinner, cake and Easter bunny chocolates sound like quite the delights! As for your card: I'm completely smitten with your little 'weather' scene; cute clouds and that pop-of-yellow sun really is the star of the show! I know your husband adored it, as do I! We're in rainy Kelowna right now, planning to head back this a 'snowfall warning in effect' forecast! EEK!

  8. That sun is really cute - this is a fab design.

  9. Gorgeous card, Kim! I love how you die cut the clouds in white and gray and your sentiment is fabulous ~ I'm sure your DH loved it, too! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at ATSM!
