Floral inspiration challenge #TGIFC04

#TGIFC04 Inspiration ChallengeThere is an inspiring pretty picture this week at the TGIF challenge blog.

For me, I saw blooms in an array of pretty tones - Crisp Cantaloupe, Calypso Coral, slashes of Real Red and deeper Cherry Cobbler.  I chose to make flowers from the Everything Eleanor stamp set in these colours.

I tried to find a patterned paper in my collection that would compliment these shades - maybe a grid style like in the background of the TGIF image.  I came across this piece from the retired Sent with Love pack and thought it was perfect for my background.  I just added the Everything Eleanor swirl in red to tie in the red from the blooms and the Riding Hood red card stock I chose to border it with.

There are lots of yellow flowers sprinkled throughout the inspiration picture.  I added yellow colouring to the centre of my blooms and then paper punched some additional yellow flowers to scatter around to finish the design.

I love challenges like these, that help me put together designs I might never have otherwise.  Can't wait to see what others in the stamping community come up with!
