Inspired By #20

I'm up as hostess on the Inspired By All The Little Things blog today - with an inspiration photo that I adore!  I'm a camera buff, so when I came across this vintage turquoise camera, I thought it was fabulous!
My wonderful niece Allie sent me the stamp set from Close To My Heart a few months ago - "Life In Pictures" so this was the perfect opportunity to pull it out.  Then... a few weeks ago I was at the One Crazy Stamper store and spotted this vintage camera paper from Bella Blvd, that just happened to be grey & aqua??  It's like it was all meant to be :o)  So I made a collage style card:

I hope you'll find time to play along with us this week, the Design Team has some fabulous inspiration to share with you, and I have invited Melinda Everitt to be my Guest Designer.  I 'met' Melinda a few years ago when we were both CTMH consultants (she still is!) and we were on the Heart2heart Design Team together.  She has an artsy streak a mile wide, and comes up with the most beautiful artwork.  So head on over to the Inspired By blog to see what she has in store for us.  Have a great weekend!
I used the June - Week 1 sketch from Viva La Verve for my card:

Patterned papers are Let's Go! by Bella Blvd and Creative Basics, CTMH; Stamp set is Life in Pictures, Close To My Heart; Cardstock is Whisper, Black, Glacier & White Daisy, CTMH; Ink is Onyx Black by Versafine; Silver sequins are CTMH; Aqua sequins are Verve; Square STAX die, My Favorite Things.
