Garden Inspirations


It's finally here! My day to be the Guest Designer over at The Play Date Cafe!! I'm so excited about this, and even more thrilled because the lovely ladies over at Lizzie Anne Designs are sponsoring the challenge today, and more than a few of our designers are playing along.

I fell in love with the color story for this week as soon as it landed in my inbox. It's clean and springy, with beautiful pops of color. I was so inspired by the flowers, I went straight for one of my favorite sets, Garden Inspirations, and made an easel card. I really wanted to focus on the huge blooms!

Take a look at the color story:
