If you have good thoughts........

Now you know I love a challenge and I love the Muse Challenge and I spend my time doing everything else and leaving my thoughts on the card till the last minute. This week I have an excuse,
palliative care are assessing mum's care needs and on the opposite end of the spectrum my latest grandchild was born. Today I went and spent the day with the new parents then came home and cooked dinner for tonight and another dinner for tomorrow night as I babysit another grandchild tomorrow and we want to go as a family over to see the baby tomorrow night and I thought taking dinner would make life easier.

Yes a long excuse, I then sat down to watch some television and an idea came to me, I had two hours to go so here we are. First I will show you the beautiful inspiration card made by Kim:

I loved the layers, a different one for the sentiment, another for the flowers; I also love the large sentiment and the purple flowers stamped in layers and then cut out.

I have gone with layers;
the sentiment on a seperate layer;
the flowers I used are digital images that I printed up
cut with the Scan N Cut
Coloured with Violet Copics as I wanted to keep them lighter
so I could add Purple to the background.

I love this sentiment which is from Unity Stamps and I have had it quite a while.
I don't seem to like my flowers as much when stamped in layers, I struggle with lining them up so I prefer to colour with Copics. These flowers are from DotB digital stamps. Also worth checking out her website EunJi is such a talented artist.

I blended with Distress Oxides, a few flicks of water. I then die cut with the Size dies (love the edges) added dimensional foam to the back of the sentiment and finished off with some beautiful clear gems that have a rainbow caste to them.
Time to link up before the challenge closes, 30 minutes to go.

My goodness!! I realy do think you do your best work when you're under pressure and only have a few hours to go. I just LOVE the layout and the colours. It works really well with the two tones of purple. This has to be a winner for sure! xx
