What a beautiful inspiration picture! The colours are so 'country' - looks great! We have Calypso Coral, Dapper Denim, Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke, if you'd like to join in and use the challenge colours to enter. Our guest designer this week is Fi Cobbin, She was two stops ago, have you seen her project yet? Don't worry, keep on clicking the links at the end and you will make your way back to the starting point.

I added Post Script, a large background stamp to the Dapper Denim layer, before cutting with the Oh So Eclectic die and adding Champagne Foil behind. The Oh so Eclectic flowers are beautiful too, and they've been stamped and die cut.

Birthday Blossoms was perfect for the sentiment, and another complimentary sentiment has been stamped inside the card too.

The sketch at The Paper Players came in very handy for me this week. Sometimes it's just a little hard to decide how you want your project to look. Update: Just a tad excited for this card to be picked by Paper Players as a winner!!!!

I was last on the Colour INKspiration Bloghop this time, but if you started with me, you can continue to my lovely friend Elizabeth from Lillylovespaper.
