I am so inspired by the colors of this gorgeous 'carrot shaped' bouquet - now you might think I'd turn to my Altenew carrots, but think again!
I was immediately transported to Mexico, where our
wonderful Monarchs gather for the Winter! We would love to go there someday
to witness them in all their glory - until then, we'll keep 'growing' a few
to add to their numbers, and are awaiting their arrival in June.
Wanna see my card? You thought I'd never
shut up ask...
Mowed Lawn Distress Oxide ink , and the gorgeous C&9th Parsley paper,
are a match made in Heaven!
And all these luscious Catherine Pooler inks - so vibrant!
It was high time I got my father in law's hammer back out -
after 4 years it's still hard to believe he's gone... miss you, dad.
This technique adds just a teensy bit of interest without
detracting your eye from the focal point.
A little white-on-parsley sentiment label, and a smattering of clear PPP sequins
were added before the final shot.
Okay, it's high time I send you over to the Inspired By #168 to see how
my teamies were inspired - thanks for stopping by! and I hope we
inspire you to play, too!
Here is a look at those gorgeous Monarch's on PBS - just highlight, right click,
and click 'go to webpage' ... I've watched it a gazillion times!
