What a beautiful spring day it has been today. I was running around the hospital site like crazy most of the day, meetings here, picking up samples there, and all this without wearing a jacket, enjoying the warm sun on my face. Over the weekend, we bought some new plants for the flower borders. I know absolutely nothing about gardening or plants, I just buy stuff with nicely coloured flowers and they say hardy or easy to care for. I figured, those might have a chance to survive. Check in on the situation in a few weeks again. I figured, if they survive the first few weeks, they should be all right. I'm particularly excited about my new peonies, I really hope they will get to a great start to life and produce wonderful colourful flowers in a few month's time.
Colour is one thing today's card has plenty of. I've been a bit challenged in the creativity department lately, but I promise I will make up for it in a few days with a few really inspiring posts to come. Today's card was inspired by the gorgeous card by Anita Bowden over on Muse challenge and the colours over at Always Playing With Paper. I was inspired by the gorgeous background in Anita's card, and the inlaid die cut. I was also inspired by the current challenge over at Just Us Girls, which is smooshing. I smooshed Tim Holtz Distress Paints on watercolour paper to create the colourful background and the card for the die cut sentiment. The it was just a case of assembling everything onto foam pads and stamping the second part of the sentiment. I'm also linking up with AAA Challenges where Anything Goes and Addicted to CAS where the theme is Inlaid Dies.
Ink and paint: Tim Holtz Distress Paints Mustard Seed, Picked Raspberry, Mermaid Lagoon, Twisted Citron, Mowed Lawn, Tsukineko Tuxedo Memento Black
