This time, Lucy's challenge is to create a card that inspired by someone else's card. If you follow me regularly, you know my top two favorite card makers are Jennifer McGuire and Lucy herself. For this card, I was inspired by Jennifer's card here and by Lucy's love of dots.
Dots background by Papertrey Ink, birds by Inkadinkado (colored with Copic markers), and greeting by Hero Arts. I love how Jennifer put her flower outside the border a bit and that's what I repeat here with the bird. I did layer the bird for extra dimension, too.
I love making cards that have that clean looks to it, but yet have certain thing that just popped up. In this case the color of the birds really make them stand out. I look at this card and it makes me smile. It's cheerful and like the card says, "Find joy everyday."
Oh yeah, in case some of you wondering if my name is Vera how come I named my blog Ling's Happy Place? See, I have 2 names. Being born in Indonesia with Chinese heritage, it's normal over there to have 2 names. One is the legal name that we use on all our paperworks and one is your Chinese name. I do love the name Ling, cause it sounds like a bell and most of those that close to me call me Ling. Call me Vera or call me Ling, whichever you prefer. :)
Okie dokie, that's it for today. Enjoy the card and if you want to join Lucy's challenge you have till March 7. Thank you for stopping by. Cheers, Vera (Ling)
