ATSM Challenge #65 - Photo Inspiration

Goodmorning everyone! It's Wednesday so that means a new challenge over at Addicted to Stamps and More.

We have a photo for inspiration for you -

You can take ANY of the elements from this photo to create something of your own.

Here is my DT card -

Now, you may be thinking how did I get this 'spring' looking card out of the photo inspiration? I decided to use the flowers that are in the photo as the main elements for my card. As it is Spring here in Australia, I thought it was nice and colourful for our season.

I have used some retired DSP for the background and then used my Blossom Punch on white cardstock which I popped up using dimensionals. I punched out some smaller flowers in Old Olive and Melon Mambo, used my paper piercer to add in a brad and then used dimensionals to pop them up too.

The sentiment is from the Simply Sketched set and inked with Wisteria Wonder.

Pop on over to the challenge blog for more wonderful inspiration from the DT. We also have some new team mates to welcome. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Thanks so much for looking xx
