Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge

*This is my second post for today, make sure you scroll down to see everything*

Hi everyone!  I'm happy to be filling in for a Design Team member at the Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge, hosted by my OCC buddy, Lori Rider.  The photo above is the inspiration for this week's challenge.  Lori chose a photo that could be patriotic if you wanted to make a card for the upcoming holiday, but there are also other themes and colors you could use to go in a different direction.

I chose not to do a patriotic card, but a baby card.  These colors just scream 'baby boy' to me.
I pulled inspiration from the colors as well as the boat in the photo.  The boat stamp is from a Hero Arts set.  I stamped the boat first on white, then again on light blue and red.  I cut out the blue and red sails and applied them to the white card stock using foam dimensionals.
There are so many ways you can go with this inspiration photo.  Please check out the regular design team members to see their take on the photo:

Great card, Dana! I love what you did with the ribbon. I'm going to have to go back through my ribbon basket and pull out some of the ones I thought were too wide!

Glad you could join us this week!
