Pin-sights Challenge Ellen Hutson

Happy Thursday, my friends!  Today’s video tutorial is going up early for you all because my sweet friend, Laurel Beard, who runs the new Pin-sights Challenge over at the Ellen Hutson blog asked me to join as a guest designer this month.

Of course I was thrilled to say yes!  As soon as I saw this mood board, I couldn’t wait to run into my stamp room and get BUSY!

There is so much to be inspired by here…am I right?  But what really captured my attention was the pink flowers with the dark background in the upper right hand corner.

You can play along, too!  Check out the challenge over at Ellen Hutson.  Use Essentials by Ellen goodies, use the mood board as inspiration, link it up and you could win a $50 GC to shop!  WOOT!   You have until April 29th to enter.
