Kitty's Flower Bouquet

Hello again and Happy Monday.  I think it is still Monday.  ;)

Today's card is one I made for the {Pin}spirational Challenge this week.  You can check out their blog HERE.  This is the photo they posted to use as our inspiration.

I really love the flowers and I think this is a fabulous idea.  I just could never see myself watering all those pots all the time.  It gets pretty hot and dry down here in HTown.  It's really pretty to look at.  Anyway, here's the card that I created focusing on the flowers and colors.

 I have a couple birthdays of friends coming up this month and next so I'm sure this one will be finding a home somewhere soon.
