Cottage Blog Challenge #1

Hello Cottage Cutz Fans!
Today we are excited to start our first challenge!  We will start a new challenge the 2nd Saturday of each month.  I am the host for this month's challenge and I chose to use a photo for inspiration.  I think this photo is so pretty! When I started making my card, I really struggled with it.  I thought, great, I chose the photo and now I am  feeling really challenged.  I was inspired by the colors in the photo.  How does it inspire you?  Is it a feeling it evokes in you?  Are you drawn to the actual image, or the colors?  For this challenge you are to create a card, layout, or whatever your inspiration leads you to create.  It will be fun to see how each person interprets the challenge.



Here is my card and the projects of the other designers that were able to participate.

Here is Shar's beautiful card!








Play along for your chance to win a $25.00 gift certificate to spend at The Scrapping Cottage store.  To qualify for a chance to win you must use a Cottage Cutz die or dies in your project.  Please use Mr. Linky to link to your project post, not just your blog.  Most importantly, have FUN!!
Hugs and smiles, 
Janice

I'm not sure I used Mr. Linky correctly, so I'll try posting my card this way.
