Inspiration Challenge - Challenge #4

Hello Critter followers. Here is your 4th challenge. This week we are going to do things a tad different. We are going to step away from a sketch and do an inspiration challenge.

So this week I challenge you to make a card using an image that has a flower in it. The image itself can be a flower or it can be an image that has a flower somewhere in it. The second part of the challenge is to use the color combo of blue, yellow, and green.

Our sponsor Paper Jewels has some really cute images with flowers in them. Just an FYI in case you want to support our sponsor and snag up one (or ten) of their cute images.

The majority of our design team used images from Paper Jewels.
