Card fun

Sometimes it's much more fun to make a card with no purpose than one for a specific occasion. I find that I eventually end up sending these no purpose cards to someone, although often it's another scrapbooker or cardmaker.  Here's a card I made using color challenge 27 from Your Next Stamp.  The sentiment was made using a YNS stamp, but I changed it around by using a wood piece in the middle.

Thanks for looking!

We took a wonderful wine tour from Avignon in France. Our first stop was the village of Gigondas in the Cotes du Rhone region.

I am submitting this to the inspiration challenge at Creative Embellishments. I was inspired by the earthy colors combined with nature elements in the inspiration photo. The photo also inspired me to add a little butterfly in my upper flower cluster. The wooden arrows  in the lower cluster are from Creative Embellishments. I also included the twist of adding a flourish. I die-cut a small flourish and cut it in half, using one half in each flower cluster.

I also used this sketch from ScrapMuch?

Photo Fun at Pisa

We stopped in Pisa to visit the leaning tower this summer. The tower is much more impressive in person than in photos and it is hard to believe how far it is actually leaning over. We had some fun taking these stereotypical photos. Sometimes you just have to be a tourist.
