The Challenge 43-Fresh Cut Floral Thank You

*** Scroll down to the post below or click HERE to see my card for this week's Mojo Monday sketch! ***

The Challenge is back again with a new challenge!  This week we have an inspiration challenge based on the photo seen above.  There are so many great elements in the photo to choose from!  I used the watering can in the forefront of the photo as my starting point.

Fresh Cut Floral Thank You card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud stamps and dies from WPlus9I stamped a watering can from WPlus9's Fresh Cut Containers set in shimmery copper ink, then added an array of flowers and leaves from the Fresh Cut Containers set and the Fresh Cut florals set.  After settling on an arrangement that I liked, the watering can and flowers were adhered to a woodgrain patterned paper panel.  I used foam tape for some of the pieces to give them a bit of dimension.  I stamped the "thank you" sentiment next to the watering can and flowers in bright pink pigment ink, then arranged a trio of pink sequins around the image.  The finished panel was adhered to a pale gray card base.

Check out what the rest of the talented team at The Challenge has created based on this week's inspiration photo.  Here's where to find them:
