So many inspiration.

I am sure this is not only happening around my area, and I love the looks of it. What I mean? The succulent crazy that is going on at the moment. They are so pretty and delicate and I see them everywhere. Therefore, they are a big source of inspiration.

That, combined with the Color challenge from DoStamper Star 224 and the stunning Oh So Succulent stamp set and framelit, a winner was crowned. I did not have to add much but I added a bit of ribbon and also a retired dsp that brought hints of green to the card. Now, the big plant was cut in Mint Macaron, believe it or not. I sponged it with Old Olive on the center parts and a spread towards the edge. But stopped short to allow room for a bit of Sweet Sugarplum to give that bit of reality to the plant. I used dimensional on the largest and the other 2 layers for a 3d effect. I also popped the little flowers with dimensional. For the background, I could not have a flat piece of paper, therefore texture was my best friend. Today the Lovely Lace answer to the call of duty beautifully. I absolutely love the looks of this card and hope you will too.

Thank you for your visit. Hope you will find some inspiration here and all around. Be well
