A Photo Inspiration

It is very cold over here today, and weather forecasts predict that it will get colder..... just so not like my card here. .. I think it came out so bright and colourful....

... well it had to be! Look at this picture. It is the theme for today's challenge over at I ♥ PROMARKERS...... be inspired. As for me, I was inspired by the bright colours from this photo..  

For my card today I used this adorable Bildmalarna stamp, which lucky me, was one of the goodies in the candy that I had won from Claire last month. So many thanks Claire! 

The background paper is from a free paper pack gift in the magazine Quick Cards, the grass die is Die-Namics.. four layers I have there, two of them all popped up !  .... and the rest of the stuff are all oldie goodies from my stash. I've had these cute cats for ages, they are from Papermania... so sweet, I never want to use them and just want to keep them!!! 

The butterflies were a free clear stamp in a magazine, as was the pretty floral stamp on the side. I first stamped the image directly onto the paper, and not liking how it turned out, since the paper is coloured, I stamped it again on a white card this time, coloured them with promarkers and then patiently cut out the little teeny weeny flowers and glued them on top of the first stamp. 

Our sponsor this week will win a fantastic £10 voucher from Joanna Sheen store.

I would like to enter my card in these challenges today.
