Inspired by All the Little Things - #43

I have had a love affair with making cards inspired by photos for quite some time ... Inspired by All the Little Things has such wonderful ones - guess who has been invited to play along?!


Here is the lovely photo that I was given to play with - and, yes, I have the pleasure of inviting YOU to play cards with us, too!


I have taken my inspiration from the colors, shapes, the vase of flowers, and that fabulous mirror in the photo ...
here is the result:


Thank you to Karren Johnson, from the Inspired by All the Little Things team, for the honor of joining the Challenge this month as their guest designer!  What a treat to have a card among the glorious creations by their top-notch team!

Thank YOU to every one of you for stopping by today ... it always makes my heart smile!
