Hi, everyone! I have a confession.....I am totally addicted to American Ninja Warrior!!! Not only are the obstacle courses very challenging and the athletes are all amazing, but I love to hear each of the contestant's stories, plus the announcers make it even more fun! Why am I bringing this up, you ask? Recently Akbar Gbaja-Biamila (one of the announcers) wore the most beautiful blue suit with a yellow shirt under it. Each time the camera pointed at Akbar, I wanted to run to my stamp room to make a card!!!! When I saw the Inspiration Challenge, I knew that today was finally the day that the inspiration would finally come to life! This week's Inspiration site is Lang by Calendars.....this gorgeous blue and yellow calendar jumped right out at me!! For my card, I chose one of the floral prints from the ODBD God's Beauty Coloring Pages, colored the flower centers with yellow then coated them with a clear glaze pen. The flowers were water-colored with Brilliant Blue ink. Once the leaves were colored with an Old Olive marker, the center of the coloring page was fussy-cut out and the panel was popped up on foam tape over a Barely Banana panel which was cut out with the ODBD Custom Pierced Rectangles Dies. The word dies are from the ODBD Custom Inspiration Words Dies set and the tiny hearts are from the ODBD Custom Umbrellas Dies set. I will also be submitting this to the May Fan Club 'Mother May I?' Challenges since I will be saving this for my Mom's birthday....these colors will melt her as they did me!!
Thanks so much for looking! Have a very blessed day!

It is Sat morn, I have my mug of tea and this is the first thing I see?
You fussy cut that? And all the little bits between flowers too!?!?
I can see why you love this color combo-and this pairs of shades of them...SOO pretty!!! (that is very funny about the announcers clothing)
The shade of blue you achieved for the flowers is fantastic.
The centers is clever. I am going to remember that.

Angella, this is gorgeous and I know you spent a lot of time creating it. It is colored beautifully and you did some fancy fussy cutting. Your mother will surely treasure it. I had a laugh at how you wanted to run and create a card when they showed the announcer. So many things trigger us stampers, don't they?
