Inspiration #1

I have to start by saying I'm NOT completely happy with this card...it's ok, but not really where I wanted to go. But I wanted to show you that I'm trying to do something for my own challenge!
I've used Pretty in Pink, Purely Pomegranate, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White card stock. The flowers are from Bodacious Bouquet, don't they look a lot like magnolias? The branch and the bird are from the Spring Solitude Hostess set. The bird is done in Pomegranate and the branch was inked up with Choc Chip and Old Olive markers. The flowers I coloured by sponging the inks directly onto the stamp, Pomegranate, Pink and White, then stamping it onto Whisper White CS and then cutting them out. They're popped up on Dimensionals. The ribbon is delicious Choc Chip satin from the Theatre ribbon originals. My bow tying skills definitely need some work!!!

Right, so that's attempt #1. I shall try again and be back tomorrow with another go at it! It's gotten really overcast and miserable here, so I'm going to have a little nana nap and hopefully inspiration will strike while I sleep....it does happen occasionally!

Ciao
