This week's challenge from CAS-ual Fridays is to toot our own horn by drawing inspiration from our own blog banners. Here's my take on the challenge.
The purples in my banner as well as the double borders behind my blog title inspired me the most. To get started, I used the Dahlia Dimensional Punch from EK Success. EK designed the border to be rolled up after it's punched making a beautiful flower. Instead, I punched two lengths of the border and adhered them back to back to create the double-border from my inspiration. Then, I punched the double link trim with one of Martha Stewart's double-edge punches. Then, I stamped the sentiment with TPC Studio's wonderful "Hello" stamp. I just love this stamp!
Do you want to join in the fun and make a card inspired by your blog banner? You have until noon on Thursday. Check out all the details here: http://cas-ualfridays.blogspot.com/2012/09/cfc72.html
