TCP Tuesday - Inspiration Challenge

Hi everyone! It's TCP Tuesday again and it's my turn to host. This week we're having an Inspiration Challenge for you, so get out your TCP stamps (or any others if you haven't picked some up from TCP yet) and get busy creating a card based on the photo of the colored pencils :) You can use any part of the photo that inspires you: the colors, the pencils, the shapes - whatever speaks to you!
On my card you'll see the circles - they jumped right out at me as soon as I saw the photo. The patterned paper is by Crate Paper, and the stamp set I used is TCP's "Hearts and Flowers" (for the main image and "Spring Fling" for the sentiment.
Here are the details for playing along:
  • Add a comment to this post by midnight on Saturday, April 4th. Include a link to your creation. If you're uploading to Splitcoast Stampers, use the keyword TCPTUES52 so that we can find everything in one place.
  • All of the fantastic pieces will be included in Alma's "Holey Moley Monday" slideshow over on her blog.
  • At the end of each month, Alma will choose one stamper as the "Swanky Stamper" - and that lucky person wins $25 in Cat Cash to load up on more TCP stamps!
So - what are you waiting for? :) Have fun!

What an absolutely exciting inspiration picture....it's totally what I have been into lately....lots of colors, and lots of dots/circles! I'm so excited to play....this is my first TCP challenge.....I think I need to head on over and make a little purchase, so I have more to work with in the future!
With that said, here's my card!
