TRR #54 Flower Cart

Do you love ribbons, lace, paper flowers and other trims?  The Ribbon Reel is just for you.  Twice a month they host a challenge where you can enter you creations and possibly win some gorgeous embellishments to play with.  The design team gets to take turns choosing inspiration photos and this time it was my turn.  I chose this image of a weathered cart of beautiful lavender flowers.  No surprises here - you all know I'm seriously addicted to purple.  The challenge is easy - create something inspired by the colors in the photo and be sure to add a flower and ribbon.  Yes!  The flower can be stamped of course!!

I got a set of Bo Bunny papers and embellishments as a gift from a friend and I thought they'd be perfect for this challenge. There are highlights of green and yellow, and cream like the photo.  Goodies from the Ribbon Reel that I added include a pretty pearl pin, sheer polka dot ribbon, some velvet, button thread, paper roses and even a sweet little button!
I hope you will visit the rest of the design team and see the beautiful creations they made as well.  Just click on their names below to jump to their blogs

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!

So, so much to take in and it all blends with such ease and style. Your little inspire tag in the frame did just that...inspired me. I think it's sensational Jeanne :)The music notes are wonderful, love that hat pin and the miss you tag...awe!! Fantastic card :)

So pretty! There's just something about green that makes purple totally worth playing with ;). And I just love that you added some floral goodies from TRR. It's so hard to tell from the store pics how large they are. TFS!
