Pinspired By...

Last year I discovered the vast storehouse of inspiration that is Pinterest.  I know I'm definitely not alone in enjoying all the wonderful content that Pinterest has to offer, and I'm sure many of you already have hundreds of items pinned to boards to help encourage and inspire you.  Since I tend toward practicality I decided to use my pins to inspire some card-making.  Each month I plan to create a card based on an idea from Pinterest... with full credit to the original artist of course.  I hope you will also be inspired to put your pins to good use and create some beautiful pinspired projects.
 
 
This card is based on a beautiful design by ScrappinBari (Linda W).  It's a fabulous way to use up scraps of patterned paper and cardstock and can be modified to fit just about any occasion.  It was really simple to make and would be easy to mass produce for those times when you need lots of cards in a hurry.

You have made a beautiful card by being inspired by someone else. That is what crafting is all about I think.
