{The Cat's Pajamas} TCP Tuesday Inspiration Challenge

It's time for another TCP Tuesday at The Cat's Pajamas and our hostess this week is Christine with an inspiration challenge. The challenge runs for two weeks and The Cat’s Pajamas stamps are not required. See full details at the end of this post.

The the image from the Kick Some Grass set was cut out with Spellbinders Nestabilities with some out of the box action and then colored with Copic Markers. I haven't used this set in a long time and it felt good to get it inky. I combined the image with patterned papers from the American Crafts True Stories pad. A flower from Patterned Petals was stamped with Daffodil Delight ink and then cut out with the matching 5 Petal Posies die set. The sentiment was stamped with Tangelo Twist ink directly onto the card base.
