Here is the inspiration photo:
Here is the first card I made. I was keyed into the pink jewelry boxes that made a curve alongside the photo, the bling, the rich purple tones in some of the fruit and the embossing. So I chose the feather to represent the curve of the pink boxes, some sequins to represent the bling and used gold embossing to highlight the feather and emphasize the sentiment. The purple or mulberry tones in the photo were difficult to duplicate but I found a sheet of glittery paper at Michael's that looks like a lot closer match in real life than it does in the photo below. I really like how the sentiment from the Praise set matches the feather.
For my second card I tried to introduce some of the other colors in the photo, the yellow and red tones inside the cut fig, for example. There is that curious shade of yellow on the plate too, which has green tones, and the fancy filigreed embossed image at the top. So for this card I used Ranger distress inks to make a watercolor background that peeps through the die cut image of the flowers. I embossed the side to represent the filigree at the top of the photo, stamped the sentiment in gold and my bling is pink (the sequins) to represent the jewelry boxes. The plate is represented by the bird in chartreuse, perched atop one of the flower's leaves. Thanks for looking and happy hopping.
