TCP Tuesday - Inspiration Challenge

Hi all! This week I'm the hostess for TCP Tuesday, and I have an Inspiration Challenge for you. I love this hat from L.L. Bean - you can see it on their website right here. The bright colors are perfect for winter, and I really like the chocolate brown background. Of course, since it's an Inspiration Challenge, you don't necessarily need to use the colors as inspiration - you can use anything that jumps out at you when you look at the picture :)

For my card, I used TCP's brand new "Give A Little" set. I cut out circles with a craft knife to replicate the pattern on the hat, and added some Stickles (Magenta) to a white felt snowflake for a little more bling. Here's the scoop on how to play along:

  1. All challenge entries will go into TCP's monthly Swanky Stamper contest. This means $25 in Cat Cash for the winner to spend on new stamps from The Cat's Pajamas!

  2. Link your creation to the slide show on Alma's blog so that we can all see it!

  3. TCP stamps are not required, but are of course highly recommended :)

  4. If you'd like to also upload your piece to Splitcoast Stampers, use the keyword TCPTUES85 for this week.

  5. Have fun!!

Love the colors. And CONGRATS on finishing school. You should be very proud of yourself, it's hard enough to do it when you are right out of high school but to do it with a family and part time job is amazing!

Awesome challenge - that is a fun hat. Love your card. :) The little penguin is too cute especially with the glittery details. :)

Awesome! I would never think to put all those colours together; but how fantastic it looks!
