Inspired by Marimekko

Imagine my surprise when I finally had a moment to check out today's inspiration challenge: marimekko umbrellas, an inspiration suggested by me. I'm sure Stef receives plenty of suggestions and has great ideas of her own, so I'm always happy when she chooses an inspiration that I suggest.

I love marimekko and find all of their products inspiring. If you've never seen any of their stuff, go check it out. Very cool.

My card, inspired by this umbrella, is super simple: some stamping on the base, then adding some Primas, brads, and Hodgepodge Hardware.

Stamps: The Art of Life (SU), Sunny Smile (Hero Arts)
Paper: PTI white
Ink: Basic Black, Pixie Pink
Accessories: Primas, brad (Oriental Trading Co.), Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware
