CRAFT #96 - Inspirational Photo

We've got the most gorgeous inspirational picture for you this week at CRAFT Challenge!

Our generous Sponsor is Sew Many Stamps and they are providing one lucky winner with a choice of 5 digis!

I've kept my project for this week really simple (partly for lack of time!), but I think it looks really effective. I've taken my inspiration from the colour and sparkle in the pic. The flower and leaves are cut with Marianne dies and the greeting is a rubber stamp, The gem and mirri card are from stash :) This was so quick to make and has a really fresh feel to it.
