Divine Divas Inspiration Challenge #24!

Hello!  Don't you love this springy photo?  This is from a Pier 1 Cattie and it's our inspiration photo for this challenge : )  I decided to pull out the yellow, red, and green as well as the flower shape:
I made the flower by layering several different sized flowers from the PTI set Blooming Button Bits.  The stem comes from the PTI set Floral Fusion as does the sentiment.  The dp is Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety.  I roughed up the edges a bit with my Tim Holtz Paper Distresser which also qualifies this for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to use distressing :) 

Today is the One Year mark for the Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge and Lori is giving away some candy to a participant for this challenge!  Just add the link to your project on Lori's blog and you will be entered to win!

Make sure you check out what the other Divas created and have a wonderful Easter weekend!

I hope you never get sick of me saying how much I love your cards. But you always do something that just makes me swoon. I love the stacked flower and the roughed up edges. I want some springtime flowers here where we live! This is so cheery!

I love Pier One! Fabulous card, Kerri! Love the colors!

I had an awesome striped patio umbrella a few years ago from Pier One and remembered to go close it as a storm was coming and it was too late. The wind had threw it off our patio and broke it. So, I bought another one and the same darn thing happened! LOL Our current house has a covered back deck, so no patio umbrella is needed!
