Some wonderful challenges here today! First for the Inspiration Challenge, I chose this Round Floral Box. I really liked the red/orange background surrounding the flowers so I stamped my crocus, masking as I went, and colored in the area surrounding them w/ Copics. They looked a little too plain to me so I added just a touch of green shading to the flowers. A few crystals were added for the bling part of the Love Fest challenge.
The images are from Our Daily Bread designs. I added a few die cut layers using the Marvelous Squares set from Spellbinders, but I had to resize them to make them rectangular. The little green doodads are part of a Cheery Lynn crochet border die. The finished card is 5.50 x 4.25.
Thanks so much for looking! I'll have it on my blog in just a bit: The Write Stuff

First off, I like the green doodads (and I like that you called them doodads)..You always have a way with bright vibrant colors..your cards just jump out at me whenever I see a thumbnail. This is incredibly beautiful..your coloring superb, the choice and layering of die cuts always very thoughtful and well planned out..another beauty Julie!
