Photo Inspiration at Catch the Bug

It's Saturday, which means a new challenge over at Catch the Bug today! It's nice to have some visual inspiration! You can choose to use the colors, the theme of the photo, or go off on a tangent because of some emotion a photo touches within your soul....however this picture inspires you, we want to see it in your project!

This week's theme is a
Photo Inspiration
(See picture toward the bottom of my post)

My card features the Bugaboo Stamps Flower Tags - Tag 1. I thought this would make a nice frame for a pretty sentiment. :) The photo really reminded me that even though Mother's Day has officially passed this year, that it is important to remind mom how big a part she is in the family! I don't do that for my mom enough, so this is a good card for my stash! :)

This week I used my Nesties, an old Sizzlit, an EK Success flower punch, an old button I had in my stash, and a charm and brad. The papers are some new ones I picked up at Michaels. I don't normally buy the 6" paper pads, but have recently found several I liked, and had stocked up on them. I've decided I do like how quick a card can be made from them, and it's so nice to have coordinating papers handy. I'm a huge fan of yellows, blues and whites, so I couldn't resist the papers when I saw them. They contrast so beautifully, andd it's so fun to find gorgeous patterns in the different shades of each.
My flowers and leaves were cut with my new Silhouette Portrait machine so I could pop-dot them from some depth. If you click the image to enlarge it, I think you can tell a little better.

Here is the photo to use for your inspiration, too! We'd love for you to play along with us!
