Inspiration Photo Challenge at The Sisterhood

Hi there!

Today brings us to a new challenge at 

The Sisterhood of Crafters and "yours truly"

is the hostess this time around!!

I chose the inspiration photo below to get your creative juices going!!


What do you see in the photo that inspires you?
Maybe it's the colors, the flowers, the fence...
or maybe all of it!!
I "kind of" went with all of the above!



I used a lavender die and once cut, 
applied glue to the stems
and grabbed from my stash Lavender flower soft.....
remember that stuff...I wish I had it in every color
as it is so perfect for so many projects!


I also used a teeny tiny rolled flower die and rolled "me up" some Roses!
The butterflies are from a very neglected Sizziz SU die.
Remember that embosslit die?
It's Beautiful Wings...
I love this die, it cuts and embosses 5 various butterflies!

So now head on over to "The Sisterhood" and see what my "sistahs"
have to inspire you!!

Before you go, I wanted to share a pretty flower (Alluim)
from my garden...I just love these...
the perfect round shape is so intriguing!


Thanks for visiting!!
Diane H

I love fresh lavender sprigs, and these on your card are very realistic. I enjoyed the combination of flowers used on the pretty white trellis. Thanks for sharing your inspiration, and your home garden photo.
Have a great week!

I can hardly bear to look at the inspiration photo. It's so gorgeous it hurts. I love the lattice fence you created, and the lavender with the Flower Soft. I'm hoarding what's left of my Flower Soft, I guess. They discontinued it at our local stamp store, boo hoo. I'm finally feeling a little caught up and can do some visiting. Spring gardening takes a bite out of my crafty time. Just look at those fabulous allium. I tried growing those here but they didn't do so well. The smaller allium grows like crazy, though.
