Today I have a card for you that was inspired by 3 challenges.

First off here is the card:

And here is the inspiration behind it:

I chose the colours after I saw this dreamy photo at Papercraft Star-I used these soft subtle colours and my watermark stamps to represent the waves.

The layout came from the sketch this week at CAS(E) this sketch-I flipped this sketch and used watermarks rather than uniform stripes and added the wood grain embossing to add texture but still keeping the striped look.

And the initial inspiration came from Jocelyn's card at Case Study-I loved the splatter look and wanted to draw on this:

I love it when I am inspired from a number of different sources. It continues to amaze me how all these aspects work together to produce one card!

Have a fun Monday x
