The Challenge - Inspiration Week!

It is 'inspiration' week at The Challenge - here is the gorgeous photo, which we hope will inspire you in many ways:


 
I've taken my inspiration from the adorable bicycle pillow, and all the glorious textures - the brick, basket, tile, and wooden box combined to allow me to use [yes, another] the latest of my embossing folders!!  Also a snippet of darling, glittery ribbon from American Crafts.
 
For The Challenge #43:
 
Hero Arts F5293 Bicycle - wood mounted
Dear Lizzy sparkly ribbon
SSS Fog cardstock
 
I hope you'll take a ride over to The Challenge blog to see where the DT will take you ... oh, and Anita Madden is our Guest Designer this week - Allana is our Featured Designer ... how fun is that?  Two guests - and wait! A brand new team member!!! - even more inspiration!! Welcome, Diane!!!
