What a beautiful inspiration challenge!! I was inspired by some of their gorgeous porcelain. I especially loved the purple flowers on this Pear Shaped Floral Limoges Box..
For today's card, I used ODBD Earth's Gladdest Day and Seeds . I stamped the crocus and embossed it in black on watercolor paper and then colored and painted with watercolor markers. I then embossed the background with a SU embossing folder to make it look like Aida cloth ( I know the inspiration did not have the texture but I just wanted to add texture). The sentiment from Seeds was stamped in Stazon Purple ink on a Spellbinders Fancy Framed Tags Two.
Thanks for looking!! Thanks for a great inspiration Stef!!

This is just absolutely lovely! What beautiful colors.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia

Lovely, lovely sentiment, Chris. your card is beautiful with the first-sign-of-spring crocus which you have colored so beautifully. Wonderful overall texture in the bg and the lace and silk bow add such elegance.
