FYI Challenge #6

This is my first time entering a challenge at For Your Inspiration. Steph C. and her amazing DT have some BEAUTIFUL artwork to inspire you, so if you haven't visited yet, check them out :) Your creation just might be chosen and in addition to winning the coveted Lovely Lotus award, you could take home some YUMMY candy!!! *cool*

For MY card, I decided to use the rich, warm colors of the balloon in the front of the photo. It kinda reminded me of autumn, but I wanted to stamp these flowers, so I used a brighter yellow to make it seem summer-y :) Thanks for visiting today!!!

*All supplies CTMH unless otherwise stated*
Cranberry, Buttercup, Cocoa and Colonial White CS
Friendship's Garden SS
Cranberry, Buttercup and Cocoa inks
heart brad and ribbon from my stash
edge distresser and sand paper
Fiskars border punch
