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 Picnic Ant Let's Eat image. Doesn't it seem like the ants always make their way to the food at a picnic?! Drives me crazy!

My card features a Silhouette picnic basket cutting file that I embossed some lines into, and then I inked over them with a sponge dauber for depth. I had the utensil ribbon (the red one) and the star ribbons in my stash. The nestie is a new one for me - love my dies! :)

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

Now that you've seen how this pic inspired me, let's see what it did to inspire you! Be sure to head over to Catch the Bug to add your creation to the Mr. Linky to play along with our challenge. :0)

  1. Oh, yeah, I'm ready for a picnic (but only if someone else is doing all the prep work! I already worked too hard this week.) Love that adorable ant, Cheryl! Terrific framing of the image and I love the basket. :_D

  2. Sooooo cute! Love that clever picnic basket and the fun new die!

  3. Your fun card reminded me that I have the star die too and I had better get it out and start using it. I really wanted to go on a picnic this weekend after seeing the Bugaboo Challenge. I guess cooking chops on the grill and spending time with family will have to be a good substitute.

  4. We BOTH used ants! And your picnic basket is the perfect touch!

  5. funny image, very cute and summery indeed
