Two weeks ago, I was chosen as "Jazz Cat of the Week" over at Jazzy Inspirations. If you love jazz music, and want to play in a fun inspiration challenge, head on over there today! As Jazz Cat of the Week, you are a Guest Designer for that week's challenge. The week I was chosen I was at CHA, so I couldn't play along. But this week I did and it was a lot of fun. My son is a Jazz Studies major (trumpet), and we listen to a lot of jazz in our house, so this weekly blog challenge is a perfect one for me!
Our album for inspiration this week is by Grant Green. The colors we worked with were Basic Black, Creamy Caramel, Old Olive, and Whisper White.
You can see all of the Design Team's creations HERE. Tenia is even giving away some blog candy this week for one lucky participant! Read all about that HERE.
For my card, I chose to use a layout similar to the album cover. I had a stack of chipboard hearts in my stash, and thought it would work to use one of them for my main design. I scored a border using my Scor-Pal, then stamped the image from Happy Harmony (Stampin' Up!) in the corner (where the album title was). I then used one of Basic Grey's new rub-ons for my main image on the heart. I liked the look of this distressed flower against the stark white of the card base. I added some brads and ribbon, distressed the edges, and was done!
