Hello Spring - The Challenge #64

Good Morning Monday
Happy Spring!

Yesterday was the first day of spring, 
but it sure didn't feel like it
in North Carolina!

A little cold snap came through 
making for a very chilly day!

But it is now spring --- YAY!

Today there is a new challenge
The Challenge!

Take anything you want from our
Inspiration Photo to make
your project!

Look at those wonderful bright, springy colors!

Check out what the Design Team has done for 
added inspiration:

Here is what I created---

My image is a digital stamp, peonies, from Power Poppy Stamps.  I thought it was just gorgeous!  My dad loved peonies!  I colored them with pink and orange gelatos. green for the leaves,mixed with water on water color paper.  I added some gold Wink of Stella and Diamond Stickles to the centers.  The sentiment I cut from white foam, gold and black cardstock.  I was going to keep it gold at first but it just didn't show up too well so I stacked black on top and made it a little two-toned.  I layered some green patterned paper, dark coral, black and gold cardstock behind the image.  I wanted the image to have center stage.

For Following Challenges:

This is such a beautiful card! My mom loves peonies and had 3 big bushes right outside our garage when I was a kid. I still get a big smile on my face whenever I see any!
