Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge 37

It's the first Thursday in October, which means that it's time for another Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge. I also just realized that I've been doing these challenges for a whole year now. It's been a fun year with some truly beautiful inspiration photos--thanks for inviting me to play, Lori!

These Classico soaps from Cambria Cove were our inspiration this time.  I just love the colors and the Art Deco patterns on the wrappers.  Truly beautiful.

I'm also trying to participate in the Hope You Can Cling To card drive to benefit those affected by breast cancer, sponsored by Splitcoast Stampers.  I'm not sure that I'll get all of them done, but I'm going to try.  This card is for challenge HYCCT02B-Lingerie Inspired.  The stamp I used is Simone from the DoodleFactory People collection at Starving Artistamps.  I colored her with Copic markers and paired her with a sentiment from the Classic Decor collection, also from Starving Artistamps.  The layout I used is Laura's sketch #62 this week at 2 Sketches 4 You so I covered a lot of challenge ground with this one!

The other Divas always come up with divinely inspired projects so be sure to take a few minutes to visit their blogs and have a look.


Hope you are inspired to come and play along. Just leave a comment on Lori's blog with a link to your card. We can't wait to see what you create! The keyword for uploading on online forums will be DDIC37.  Have fun and look for the next challenge on October 21st.


  1. This card, while so different from the inspiration piece, sure has the same feel to it!! WOW! Great job, Donna!

  2. Wow, has it been a year since you joined us? Holy cow, time goes by fast!! Your card is lovely - I never even thought of using those papers but the colors are perfect! Great image for a great cause, and your coloring is fantastic. Love it!

  3. This is awesome Donna! I love the colors you used :)
    Thanks for playing at 2S4Y!

  4. This is gorgeous!! I love the image and the dp you chose to go with the inspiration!!They are perfect!! You rocked the inspiration!

  5. Terrific take on the challenge, Donna! Love the colors and the dp and scallop edges go perfectly w/ the inspiration pic. Wonderful job!

  6. I think the pearls around the "frame" makes it look like a makeup mirror! Very cool! I don't know if that's what was intended, but it's a fun design. Papers are perfect for the deco style!

  7. Such a beautiful card, Donna, and for such a great cause! Awesome take on the inspiration, woman!

  8. Beautiful card..
