Fab Fabric Inspiration Challenge #1

Good Morning Peeps! I'm here today to share a few things with you....if you are a demo and have been on Stampin' Connection (a fine site for demos to share thoughts, inspiration, ideas - but exclusive to demos!) you may have noticed a forum post that got quite a bit of attention lately.....posted by ME!  Titled, Summer Starfruit....blech!  When I first got my new pack of the 2012-2014 In Colors, I really wondered what Stampin' Up! was thinking.....really - where did they get this color from - Summer Starfruit?  Yeah - probably from a starfruit - you're right!  But so many demos answered and showed inspiration, I changed my mind.  Summer Starfruit is HOT!  Check out this card:

It rocks the house right!  This is one we made at my local Stamp Clubs, and at first I made it without the Summer Starfruit and guess what - it was BLECH!  I added that yellow (is it yellow? is it green????) to the card and it just sang to me!  Amazing!!!
And last week while working with some Go-geous fabric (Verona from Fat Quarter Shop) for our picnic pennants, I found myself very inspired by that fabric too.
So that got me about posting a little challenge here on the ol' bloggo???

Let's start with my inspiration for today's card:

This one came from Southern Fabric and this is Aviary Granite Fabric.  For my card I actually pulled some inspiration from Southern Fabric's logo too.  And if you browse their website, you'll notice that they use this color selection on their site!  (Summer Starfruit is HOT I'm telling you!)  This fabric and site was brought to my attention by another demo on Stampin' Connection - lots of great inspiration over there!

Here's the rules:
1) There are no rules!  ;)
2) Use the above as inspiration for your card, scrapbook page, decor item.
3) Post your photo to your blog, online gallery, etc, and link it back here, using Mr. Linky below.
4) I'll pick a favorite and post back here next Sunday.
5) YOU should also be able to vote on a favorite and I'll post those results too. (As long as I set up Mr. Linky correctly....we all know how that goes right???)
So - get posting peeps - can't wait to see what you link back!!!
