Inspire Us

Good morning everyone!
It's time for a new challenge at Moving Along With The Times and I'm very excited because it's my first time to host the challenge! :)  For this week I chose one of my favorite themes...
Inspired by a Song or Film!

Our sponsor is Digi My World and I used 4 of their adorable images on my card... which is Inspired by The Beatlessong "Octopus's Garden"!
A few different techniques were used to create the background... masking, watercolor toothbrush splattering and paper piecing.  The polka dot flowers were cut with an MFT die and the sentiment is from Hero Arts.  I used a couple of $1 punches for the tiny flowers and shells.  Added my bling and googly eyes... and there you have it!

I hope you can join us and be sure to stop by the challenge blog and check out the fabulous inspiration from the DT!

That's it for today... but I will be back tomorrow with another card.  Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by!
