JAI #257 Just add inspiration

Hello there,
things are going to be a bit crazy around here soon with first Easter and then school holidays and I just know that before I turn around it will be May and Mother's Day here. So I decided to try and get myself sorted ahead of time! Our new challenge this week at Just Add Ink proved perfect for it too! This week we want you to Just Add Inspiration, Narelle picked out the great images for us this week. You can pick whatever inspires you from the image - the colours, any or all parts or patterns in the image.

Here's what I came up with.

As you can see I picked up on the jar of flowers, the gorgeous earthy muted tones and added a little touch of lace. Adding the texty DSP was to me the perfect compliment to this muted vintage feeling creation. I'm pretty sure my MIL will like this one :)

Hope you can join us for the challenge this week. Do go check out the rest of the DT's inspired inspiration creations!
