Hello! Last night I had a bit of time to make a card. I was inspired by lots of challenges and went to bed with a smile. :) The theme of the card came from Simon Says: The Color of Love. The colors and feel of the card were also inspired by Inspired by All the Little Things #41. (It only took me 41 challenges to play along...I always love the inspiration photos...but better late than never, right Tracey?)
And my sketch was inspired by CTS #207. My sweet friend Michele made this sketch, so I had to play along. I placed all my pops of color in accordance with the placement of the little sunbursts in the sketch. The large sunbursts being the large flowers and the small sunbursts being the buds. These beautiful flowers come from PTI's Don't Forget to Write kit, and I am SO excited to finally be able to use it! In the fall I was talking to my sweet mom about how I wished I had gotten the kit when it came out because Marybeth had sent us some of the flowers in our July 12 Months of Occasions kit. I pulled it up online to show her pictures and much to my shock, Papertrey still had the kit available. My sweet mom bought it for me as a Christmas gift, and I've had the box for months waiting for Christmas to arrive, so I could use it. And now I get to link it up to NBUS Challenge #10. Yay!
