mama elephant photo inspiration challenge

I'm so excited to be part of another Mama Elephant photo inspiration challenge, and I hope you'll play along with us.  The prize: a spot on the ME Challenge Team!!!  Seriously, how cool is that!

And, for our inspiration...

I was drawn to the warmth, light and airiness of this picture.  Having had such a cold winter in New York, I long for some sunshine.  My card reflects that hope for brighter days.

Can't see it very well, but I used watercolors on the sequins.  So fun to combine two trends in the crafting world...Definitely a first for me:)

Sometimes I think Mama Elephant is in my head.  Over a year ago, I was exploring the trims and notions stores in NYC's garment district, just salivating over all the sequins...and I remember thinking, why can't someone just design a sequin die?  Then I can make whatever color I want.  Well, thank you Mama Elephant for making my wish come true!

Come join the fun and play along with us.  You can find the rules below and then link up your fabulous creations on the Mama Elephant blog:

2. Challenge duration April 4 - May 5, 2014
