May Guest Designer - The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge

Hi, everybody!  I have more exciting news to share this month!  I've been invited to be a Guest Designer for May over at The Outlawz Tuesday Colour Challenge!  Woot, woot!  Our sponsor for the month is Gerda Steiner Designs, a personal favourite of mine!  For the challenge running from May 3-16, we have an inspiration photo for you:  

The challenge is to create a project inspired by something in the photo and let us know what inspired you.  For example, there are shapes in the photo (circles of the plates on the wall, triangles of the lightshades), as well as the colours or even the images on the plates.  I hope you will be inspired to join us!

Below is my card.  I was inspired by the mugs on the table and the colours blue and brown.  I used Gerda Steiner's Smell Like Christmas clear stamp set - I recently won an awesome gift certificate from Gerda's Share Your Designs Challenge (thank you!), and this was one of the stamps I chose - I was excited to ink it up for the first time!

I made a yummy little Christmas scene inspired by the photo!  I stamped, coloured, and fussy-cut the adorable images and added Star Dust Stickles to the fur trim on the mice's hats.  For the "wall" I used a scrap of blue gingham-patterned paper on which I white-heat-embossed some snowflakes from Pink and Main.  For the "table" I used a die from Penny Black.  I white-heat-embossed the first part of the sentiment from Gerda's stamp set onto a black scrap and then stamped the Cookies word on the "table" in black. I finished the scene by adhering three blue snowflake sequins.  This card was a lot of fun to make!

I would also like to join the following challenges:

Hi dear Kitty, BIG CONGRATS for another GD!! Wow! You are much in demand in these days, isn't it? :D It's because you are so talented, you well deserve these spotlights!! Gerda's stamps are super cute, I understand well why you love them! Congrats for your won at her challenge!! The stamps you choose for your winning are delicious and you put them immediately to a fabulous use!! I pinned your awesome card :) Absolutely love it, such amazing choice of colours and paper, beautiful colouring and love the glitter on the hats!! Such sweet, cute and fun scene!! The heat embossed circles with snowflakes are the perfect addition to your design, also as they take the inspiration of the circle plates in the photo prompt!! The table looks great!Always love how you use a simple black banner with white sentiment on them, it's very appropriate and I have to use this way! The cookies word and the snowflakes finished the card perfectly! It's always a joy seeing your cards!!
Sending lot of love and hugs dear friend!!! I wish you sweet and peaceful days ahead!!
