It's a grey, rainy day out there; but not in my scrap room!

Scrap Our Stash has a fun, vivid challenge for us this month; it's not only a sketch but also an inspiration photo!  This photo is full of bright, vivid colors and patterns galore!  You can see it posted below.  It truly is a gloom buster!

This really is a stash scrap!  I've had this paper forever and decided it was time to get it out to go with all the color in my photograph!  The background card stock (CS) is from DCWV Blossoms and Butterflies.

The daisy looking flowers are cut from Art Philosophy on the Cricut. The other flowers were fussy cut from the Blossoms and Butterflies CS.

I chose to leave the white border on my picture when I trimmed it and then backed it with black to set the photo apart from all the color!  There's a lot going on in that background!  ; )

I used a diagonal stripe blue paper from stash to lift the entire focal point off the background.  The green ribbon was also in my stash as well as the buttons and gems.

My title was cut from the Cricut Paisley cartridge.  All solid colored CS is from CTMH.

Photo Inspirations:  Vivid colors, Pink!, dots, stripes, flowers, and happy.

Thanks for your visit today!  Feel free to stay awhile and check out my other posts.  Questions or comments?  I'd love to hear from you, simply post below.

Have a happy day……how could you not after looking at that inspiration photo?
