For my card I chose to play off of the inspiration piece with the distressed look, green forest background, and bright pops of color. I used Glitz Finnley designer paper  for my background.  I die cut and stamped Verve's Happy Place stamp set and Happy Doodles die set. 



I colored the flowers with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol.  I added some Wink of Stella to give them some shine.  I stamped the sentiment from same set using Versafine Onyx Black ink.  I finished with some loose threading and some Verve Shine Bright Sequin Mix. 

Need a little inspiration? Check out the blogs linked below to see what the other Divas did with the challenge! It's sure to be a treat, and speaking of treats, we're giving away a $30 gift voucher to Verve to one random commenter along the hop.  Just leave a little love as you hop about for a chance to win!
