Celebrate the Occasion Challenge #6

This week at Celebrate the Occasion, the challenge is to make a thank you with a tag somewhere on the project. I saw this arched gate leading to a beautiful garden in a local park and I thought, that would make a fun card shape! Yes, I know, I get inspiration from the most random places! :) So that's how the "gate" leads to the pretty flowers on my card. I used stamp pads and a water pen to color in the leaves and flower pot. I'd like to experiment more with this type of shading and coloring, so I thought I'd start small. :)

I used Liquid Glass from Close to My Heart to make the flowers pop just a little bit, and it really intensified the color too.

Challenges:
Playdate Cafe - use pink, purple and yellow

Make sure you join us this week at Celebrate the Occasion for this fun challenge! All you need to do is create a card, layout or project and post it by Sunday, March 27th, 11:59pm (EST). The winner will be selected and entered into their monthly drawing. March's prize will be the "ROCK PRINCESS" cricut cartridge!

Hope everyone is having an awesome day!

This is beautiful Rayna!! I'm happy that I'm not the only person who is inspired at random places, objects throughout the day. My husband thinks it's silly but it is me. I keep a small tablet in my purse to write stuff down sometimes so I don't forget! I just love what you did with your inspiration and great job on your coloring! I love the liquid glass on the flowers!

Love the arch that you have created in your card. Did you use a gypsy? You just never know where you might find inspiration!
