Divine Divas Inspiration Challenge #26!

Hello!  Today's inspiration picture comes from a company called The Inglenook Decor~exciting decor for your urban cottage :)


I pulled out some of the colors as well as the butterflies to create a Mother's Day card for my MIL:


I used this gorgeous dp from the Making Memories Wedding paper pad.  The paper has such a pretty sheen to it, and it reminded me of the pearlescent shells in the inspiration pic.   The sentiment is from the PTI set Delightful Dahlia, and the butterflies are from the PTI set Butterfly Dreams.  I used Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge #72 for my layout. 

We hope you'll have a chance to play along with us!  Just use the code DDIC when uploading to an online gallery :)  Now check out what the other Divas created this week:


Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Kerri
