Inspired By #170 ~ Wrap Me Up in Spring

 

We are definitely wrapped up in spring here in my neck of the woods! The sights, the sounds, the smells... love it! Speaking of love. Look at all of those pretty little bouquets lined up for this week's Inspired By challenge.  

 

The kraft wrappings and purple-y blue flowers peeking out were my inspiration this week. I used a PPP die cut diamond tag to create my kraft background. One more tag, cut in white, holds some IO wild flowers. I had no black twine in my stash so I inked up some gray twine. It took forever and a day to dry!

I'm off to see how the team was inspired, they never disappoint! I would love to see your card in our gallery. They always bring a smile to my face!

You brought those bouquets to paper so beautifully, Lisa! A great idea to die your own twine, and the flowers? OMG they're so sweet!
