Inspiration from The Craft's Meow.

Day 2 over at The Craft's Meow's Birthday Bash had an inspirational photo
 Isn't gorgeous.  The DT really outdid themselves with the set they were using.
I chose to use one of the Freebie's that is available over at Facebook.  (see here)

Truly Grateful

I printed out the digi once on card and once on copy paper to make a mask.  Once I'd masked the image and stamped Hero Arts Old French Writing in Antique Linen.  Then I used some Wild Honey to distress the edges.  I matted onto cream and green card.  I painted the flowers with a mixture of distress inks and Pearlescent paints.  For the base card I stamped the Old French Writing down one side in the Antique Linen and stamped a flourish (Kaisercraft) in Milled Lavender in the corners on the other side.  Finished with some tiny pearls.

I am also entering this into "Less is More" masking challenge and Pan Pastel UK ~ Add a flower

Thanks for popping in to visit today.  Hope this inspired you to visit TCM and see what's happening for Day 3
