Your Strength Is An Insiration

Hello stampers,

Today I made a card for a color & inspiration challenge for The Card Concept, Of course, I started the card based on the color combo, but then seeing the pelican on the pillow brought me to bring out the Waves Of Inspiration stamp set, that I think I've used once maybe twice since getting it.

I started with a Basic White Cardstock layer & stamped the wave using Coastal Cabana Ink, added the flying birds with Pebbled Path Ink & then used the Blending Brushes to add just a tad bit of color for the sky with Balmy Blue Ink. Next, I made a frame using a layer of Coastal Cabana Cardstock die-cut using the Deckled Rectangles Dies & 2 wave components out of Coastal & Basic White Cardstocks. I stamped the pelican & a sentiment from the set using Pebbled Path Ink on Basic White Cardstock then die-cut them using Waves & Cheerful Daisies Dies. I glued the wave piece to the frame and then attached to a Coastal Caban Cardstock base. Both the sentiment & the pelican were popped up using Mini Dimensionals before adding to the card.
