My Time to Create-Inspiration Challenge

Today I'm sharing my challenge card for the My Time To Create Challenge that Lauren hosts each week. This week we have an inspiration piece. Lauren took the guess work out of it for us with the colours too...love that!
I never seem to have enough Thank You cards kicking around and I've used up most of my stash for all the teacher's last week. I loved the colours but I did have a hard time making them come together. I inked up the floral image from Thoughts & Prayers with my SU! markers and the sentiment comes from Trendy Trees.
Stamps: Thoughts & Prayers, Trendy Trees; Cardstock: Baja Breeze, So Saffron, Old Olive, Pomegranate, WW and DP; Inks: Old Olive, Rose Red, So Saffron; Accessories: White Brads, Mat pack and Paper piercer, Dimensionals, Pomegranate Ribbon
Stop by the My Time Team Blogs to see how the inspiration piece inspired them!
Thanks for stopping by today! I'm off to the zoo with Chloe and a couple of friends!

Dawn this is precious - I love how you really successfully pulled all the colors together. This was a tough inspiration for me - so much going on I couldn't really find my mojo. BUT I love what you did - the dainty flowers work so well with the dotted BG paper and the three butterflies are a perfect accent to pull it all together. Sorry I missed this post earlier - I saw the sweet post above WHICH I LOVE but missed the MTTI post! Hope work is going well for you. Hugs!

Wow, Dawn! I LOVE your card. I never even contemplated flipping that image upward, but I LOVE how it looks!! Like a vine crawling up your cs :O) Also think your blocks of color are the perfect complement to your fresh card! Love that you used Pomegranate...that thought crossed my mind as well and now I'm wishing I did! LOL What on earth did you struggle with?! You make this look soooo easy! I always adore everything you make!

Hope you have fun at the zoo with Chloe :O)
