Essentials by Ellen March Pin-Sights Challenge!

Hi everyone!  I'm so excited to be invited over to the Ellen Hutson Blog today, to play along with the monthly Essentials by Ellen Pin-Sights Challenge.  Every third Thursday of the month a new inspirational challenge is posted with a chance for you to win a $50 gift certificate to the Ellen Hutson store.

Here is the gorgeous inspiration photo collage!

The rules are pretty simple when making your card:

1. Incorporate whatever inspired you about these pinned photos and colors.
2.  Be sure to use some Essentials by Ellen products in your creation.
3.  Head on over to the Ellen Hutson Pin-sights challenge and link your card up to the challenge gallery.  You have until April 17th to enter to win!

These colors are my all time favorite colors to use, love me a rainbow!!!  I used the Rustic Botanicals stamp set and matching dies on my card with a sentiment from the Lovely stamp set.

I started my card by stamping the bloom using Midnight ink onto a piece of card stock.  Using my MISTI to line them up perfectly.  I then stamped and white heat embossed the same bloom onto some Watercolor card stock.  To color them in rainbow colors I used Zig Clean Color Brush Markers.    I cut them out using the coordinating dies and attached them to the stamped panel.  The center one is popped up for some dimension.  

The sentiment was white heat embossed onto a piece of black card stock and attached to the center of the flower.  Some clear Droplets and some black and white twine finish off my card.

I sure hope you have a chance to play along with this fun challenge.  See you in the gallery!
