Poppy Birthday

Finally, a day full of sunshine!  Well, not actually.  The morning started off with a layer of freezing rain, then a round of thunder snow that dropped about four inches in a matter of two hours.  School was delayed two hours to start with and by the time I was ready to leave, I received another call stating that school was canceled.  By 9:30 am, the sun came out and started to melt all the evidence of the crazy morning away.  I was left with sunshine pouring into my craft room and my chair was calling my name.  It turned out to be a beautiful day!

With that being said, I have been inspired to use a lot more color in my designs as of late.  I found this beautiful inspiration photo on Pinterest that I was dying to use.  Also, THIS beautiful card from Cindy was the basis of my design. 

I am still shocked that the only white on this card is the flowers and sentiment strip!


Here is the photo that inspired me.  You can find the original blog post HERE.

Color Me: Hot Pink, Peony, and Granny Smith
