Inspired by All the Little Things #8

IMG_9960


Another new challenge over at Inspired by All the Little Things! This week I am your hostess hostess with this gorgeous succulent wedding bouquet! I was so drawn to the photo on Pinterest by the beautiful colours...




I chose to make my card using the Sweet Succulent set from MFT Stamps and then i worked with the colours from there. The peach chevron background paper was die cut from a rectangular Zig Zag STAX. The images were coloured with Copic markers and then I added a few Pretty Pink Posh green sequins from the Kindness mix. The pot in the forefront was popped up with some foam tape for dimension.

I hope you head over to the Inspired by All the Little Things Blog to see who I invited as my guest for this challenge and also to play along!

Wishing you a very Happy Easter and hope you have a lovely weekend with family!
