First Mountain Plains Crafters challenge!

Hey everyone! Mountain Plains Crafters is hosting their first ever challenge and in typical fashion, I am sliding in on the last day to submit my entries! ;) I actually did two cards for this challenge, but I am only going to post one in this blog because the second one came out kind of...meh. Anyway, here's the inspiration picture we were given...




And here's my entry!





I was inspired by both the flowers and the colors in the photo; I used more subdued versions of the pink and orange so it would go better with the colors of the Anna Griffin Perfect Palette cardstock/card base I chose (her Perfect Palette really makes cardmaking so much quicker!). You can't tell in this picture, but I chose random green leaves and covered them with some coordinating glitter glue that really stand out in person. The heart in MOM is glittery, too. :) I used the Unity April 2014 KOTM: Botanical Bliss.

That's it for today's post! Remember that life is short: have fun and spend time with the ones you love.

    1. Thank you Terri! I wanted to watercolor it but I'm not very good at that, so colored pencil it was. ;)
