Sending Wishes for Inspiration

Its time for another inspiration from Stampin' Celebration (SC102)!  The challenge for this month is bright and cheery!  A perfect ending to the spring holidays and a great beginning to the next phase of weather!

I decided to incorporate the colors and the flowers into my project!  I found the Butterfly Basics stamp set on my desk (2015 Stampin' Up! Occasions catalog) and saw the flowers and leaves and decided to this image as my focal point.  I needed a quick sketch to help me get going so I went to retrosketches and found a perfect sketch (#157).

My project uses crushed curry and daffodil delight for the yellows.  The flowers are stamped with memento ink and watercolored with crushed curry, daffodil delight and old olive ink.

I decided to emboss the daffodil delight background using the Spring Flowers Textured embossing folder.  I watercolored the flowers after embossing with crushed curry ink to highlight the flowers on the embossed image.  A little white 1-1/4" jute ribbon is ticked behind the whisper white piece with a little strip of old olive 1/8" taffeta ribbon.

Fairly quick card for today.  The first thing I made for a while due to all of the travel the past few weeks.  I should be "grounded" for a few weeks so I hope to get more stamping in soon!  I need to clean up the winter stuff and pull out the fun warm weather images!

Please stop by the other Design Team projects!  They did a great job to help further inspire us all!
