Inspired by All the Little Things #40



I truly think the photo at Inspired by All the Little Things for challenge #40 is inspiring ... what color do you think I'd be inspired to use?  hmmmm??


The ethereal feeling of the photo immediately reads VELLUM to me ... this time I white heat embossed the gorgeous Altenew dahlia,  and did a bit of white Prisma coloring!  I found the perfect sprig to represent the pretty little baby's breath ... but I'm reserving the space for a sentiment as need arises.

What a fun way to start my week ... will you join me in the gallery?

Supplies: 
Altenew - Dahlia Blossoms & Beautiful Day
MFT - Cement gray cardstock
Martha Stewart - butterfly punch [thanks Lisa E. for reminding me about these beauties!]

Stunning is what comes to mind when I see this in all its glory, Michele. That flower is gorgeous with the bit of shading you added to it. Love the etheral butterflies and the little bit of pink to draw your eye. Also, stamping in white(light gray?) also helps to focus the eye. You are just so full of creativity. Thank you for sharing this beauty. Hugs!

What a beautiful inspirational photo! I love it so much and of course my immediate thought went to you using grey for sure. But after reading your post and seeing your stunning card, I can see how this inspired you to use the vellum! See your brain is much more creative than mine. lol I am in love with that Dahlia blossom! Love that you colored it with a white Primsa, it looks stunning. You did indeed have the perfect sprig to represent the baby's breath. I love it and I love the grey, pink and vellum color combo! Hugs, Brenda
