Lily Pad Challenge!

Hi All!  When I saw this Vera's challenge over at the Lily Pad I had a card IMMEDIATELY pop into my mind.  And let me tell you....that NEVER happens!  But it did this time and and although the execution of said card is a bit "off" from my mind's eye it did end up really, pretty darn close to what I picture  How great is it when that happens right?d  So, for Vera's View Challenge over at The Lily Pad the posted inspirational photo was this:


I went pretty literal in my interpretation.   I was struck by the colors, the flower imagery on the cupcakes and the subtle wood grain background and so those elements are what I incorporated into my card.  I plan on it being either a birthday or wedding card.....I haven't put the sentiment inside yet.  I also plan to do a full out wedding card like this in all white flowers too.  I do have the flowers lightly brushed with stickles that looks so lovely in real life but doesn't show up so well in the photo.  Here is my card:



I hope you likey!  And again, thank you all for your "oh so very nice" comments that have been left on my blog lately!  I plan to be able to sit down tonight and blog hop and comment....and I am SO looking forward to being able to do that!

Be well,
Sheila
