May Challenge Card - Just Create

Our team's color challenge for May has us using Colonial White, Goldrush, Ponderosa Pine and Lagoon - a very fall palette that I wanted to spring up a bit. I love using overlays, and this one reminded me of a garden trellis, which seemed perfect.

The flowers actually came from two different cards I started, but ended up not using. At the time it was frustrating, but I had those extra flowers on hand and they ended up being perfect for my final card. Sometimes just letting yourself create, even when it doesn't work out, ends up helping you in the end. There's a life lesson in there somewhere. :)

Supplies Used (All CTMH):
Inks - Ponderosa Pine
Cardstock - Ponderosa Pine, Lagoon, Goldrush, Colonial White

I LOVE the way this turned out and look forward to trying the overlay idea. Your big, bold flower inspired me with an idea for end of the school year gifts. TFS
