The fabulous flowers by the window caught my eye so I decided to focus on them.  Lean On Me's flowers were the perfect fit, so I stamped them and used the coordinating Pointed Flowers die set to cut them out.  Twinkling H2Os was my colouring medium, and the foliage was created by using the Sprightly Springs die set.  A sentiment from Bountiful Harvest along with a scalloped edge and a touch of twine finished things off.


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've got a prize for one lucky commenter along the hop! Check out the Verve Blog today for all the prize info and deadlines!
