Hi, it's Therese and I'm so excited to host the February 2020 Inspiration Challenge. This month's colors are so pretty and I couldn't wait to start creating!
For some reason, I decided to swap things out a bit with these colors and used the Warm Sunshine Cardstock in the background.
I then colored the flower from the Peony Spray Stamp Set with Artist Markers and used an inlay die-cut technique to incorporate it into the panel.
The sentiment proved a little challenging but eventually, I decided on one from the Circled Sentiments Stamp Set.
I decided to film as I created and you can watch the video here or in HD on YouTube.

Wow what a stunning design!! Love that you’ve changed it up by putting a white flower on that bright warm colored panel.
Thanks so much Cindy!
Very pretty card, I love the colors for this challenge.
Thank you Carol!
Beautiful card – so fresh looking!
Thanks so much Jen!
Beautiful card! I love the colours. And the design is so elegant.
Thank you Annette!
I adore your beautiful card. I was also inspired by the fact that even a talented designer as yourself sometimes struggles with choice and placement of a sentiment. Thanks for sharing.
I often focus more upon the card than the sentiment so ‘forget’ about it until most of the card is done so it can be an afterthought and I need to find something that ‘fits’ lol.
I like the creation video. Can’t wait to see the projects inspired this month.
Thanks so very much!
Beautiful as always. Love your style.
Thank you Laurie!
Therese, this is just fabulous!

Thanks so much Karen!
Absolutely beautiful. Loved the coloring
Thanks so much!
I just love your card you always inspire me!
Thank you very much!
Loved watching the video, Therese! Such a great idea to do the inlaid technique which I probably wouldn’t have thought to do with that flower! I liked some of the other sentiment options, but agree that the circle one was perfect! Thanks for more inspiration!
Thank you Greta, it certainly had me stumped for a while lol.
Thanks so much Nicole!
Fresh color combo reminding of the coming spring, and an elegant card design!
Thanks so much
If I post on Instagram, do I have to include the link to the challenge post?
Hi Yulia it looks like people are tagging #altenewinspirationchallenge on Instagram.
I love the Photo and the Card!
Thank you Diana
Lovely card. Plumeria is my favorite flower. Can I make a stamp for the card? Reason I am asking is that I do not used Altenew Stamps for January 2020 challenge and my 2 cards were deleted from the entry. Thanks
My understanding is that an Altenew product is required as per the rules listed above. You could email Altenew with your question for clarification. Hope this is helpful. Therese
Thank you very much for your answer.
Hello everyone, i have a question concerning the general rules for participating in the challenge: Is it necessary to have a blog or could i enter just by linking a picture to my picture of the project on instagram? Thank you for your help. Have a nice day!
Hi you can definitely enter the challenge by adding your photo to instagram, just make sure to use the hashtag #altenewinspirationchallenge Hope this is helpful. have fun!
Thank you Therese, for taking the time to answer my question!
Love the design, Therese. I need to remember the raised inlaid technique. It’s gorgeous with that yellow panel. Yellow is my favorite color and love this months inspiration challenge.
