And, here's a look at my project for this challenge. I have made a card inspired by the above Mood Board :

The base of my card has been made using three different patterned papers. The light pink striped pattern paper is from Graphic 45, followed by the blue one from Prima Marketing Cigar Box paper pad and finally the alpha one from Prima Marketing Coffee Break Paper pad.

The small butterflies were paper pieced from Prima Marketing Forever Green paper pad. For the base of my floral arrangement, I have used a Prima Marketing Doily Die #1 and popped it up on foam dots and colored with Distress ink- Tattered Rose.

 I have created a shabby-chic card so to create the look, I have distressed all the papers using a paper distressing tool and have inked all the edges of the papers with Distress ink- Tattered Rose. The flowers are all from my stash and I have Gesso-ed the edges of the flowers using Heidi Swapp Color Shine- Tropicana Teal Mist mixed with Gesso and painted using a paint brush to give that light blue colour to the flowers. The Gesso gives the flower a very nice texture and colour!

The sentiment has been stamped and paper-pieced and popped up on foam dots to give that raised look. I have used a lot of rhinestones to mimic the inspiration from the mood board.
I was inspired by the striped umbrella and the pink flowers on the mood board and all the colours too and tried to incorporate in my card through the floral arrangement and my card base!

I hope you like my inspirational card. Please do join us in this challenge by linking up your creations below in the link tool. Really looking forward to seeing all your beautiful work!
