Now, here's how I was inspired by that picture. Not by the colors, not by *those* particular flowers, but by the fact that before long I'll be seeing narcissus popping up in my flower beds just like those crocus are. I have some very early blooming ones that will start sending up foliage any time now--they might get snowed on, but they'll be popping up :) So those flowers coming up through the snow remind me that my narcissus will soon be up and Spring is on the way :)
I'm using the Paperwhites set for my card, I stamped the large image on Classic White card stock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored them with Copic markers using the Sunflower and Evergreen collections. Then I cut them out and popped them up on a very simple layout and this gorgeous yellow May Arts Ribbon.
And did you see the Flourishes blog yesterday? Starting yesterday, Flourishes will be hosting a progressive sale called our Gambler's Sale. Each week, we will drop prices until the stamp sets listed on the sale page are out of stock. We will start at 10% off and each Thursday, will drop prices by 5% until they reach up to 50% off. Quantities are limited and there will be no backorders on any of the stamp sets facing retirement. So, get these sets before they are history! You can see everything that's on sale right HERE!
Thanks SO much for stopping by today! Be sure to check out how the rest of the Flourishes team has interpreted the inspiration piece! And we hope to see you playing along with the challenge!
