Just Us Girls #221 Photo Inspiration!

Hi there!  I hope you had a wonderful holiday!  Just Us Girls also hopes you have a little craft time tucked away and can open it and play along with our challenge.  It's a photo inspiration and you can see it HERE!

 Here is my little card.  For the base I used My Favorite Things Rounded Banner Stax.  I just love all the banners on cards I have favorited or pinned on Pinterest, so I got busy with my own combination. I used MFTS fishtail stax for the three on the front. My dotted dp is from PTI (canyon clay) and my cute bunny is from Purple Onion Designs-Stacey Yacula studio.  This is Birch (the bunny!) He is stamped on Xpress it blending card and cut out then glued to a water color paper circle.
 Here is the straight on view of Birch.  I don't think it's very obvious how I used the photo as my inspiration, but I really did!  I don't have any clock stamps of any kind so I used representational circles on my card.  The banners are inspired (in part) by the hands on a clock AND do you see any connection with TIME and the RABBIT?  I did! Think about it!
Finally, the inside of my card.  It will probably get a birthday sentiment stamped on it for a friend with a January birthday!  for the plaid, I used Impression Obsession's gingham cover-a-card and versimark watermark ink.  then sponged the edges with Cajun Craze.
Guess that's it!  Please check out the Just Us Girls blog for the inspiration photo AND to enter your creation this week! You have until Thursday,  9:00 pm ET Jan. 2 to do so.  We would love to see what you come up with!
Thanks for visiting!! Have a great day!  Cheryl

Fun shaped card -- I totally love the way you finish off the inside! Maybe that's my goal for 2014.... One I could actually accomplish ;)
