Gratitude Challenge


Happy New Year! It's Tyra and I'm here to kick the New Year off with the challenge that is sure to inspire you.

First, let's announce the winner from the Cozy Winter Inspiration Challenge:

Paula Jennings.



Congrats to you!!! Please email seiblog{at}shopsei{dot}com for your prize! Hugs and Happy Shopping!!!!

As I look back at 2013 and look forward to 2014, I can't help but to feel a sense of gratitude for family and friends. Gratitude is the inspiration for today's challenge! Let's take a look at the inspirational photo collage:



By the way, that's my youngest son and I walking down the street last summer. "Thankful" and "family" are just a few of many words that come to mind when I think of Gratitude. Let's take a look at what I created:





I focused on some of the colors found in the inspiration photo and used my die cutting machine, papers from the Vogue and Chalet collections to create an interesting combination of shapes. The teal arrow and silver sentiment was cut from SEI's Kraft Basics.

I also loved using the blooms and blossoms chalkboard tag to ground the sentiment. The colors in these collections work beautifully together. If you do not have a die cutter, use the beautiful stickers from the Vogue collection, featuring very similar elements. Now I have a card perfect to give to someone to start the year off right! What will you create?
