The Challenge #13 Sincere Thanks

I have two posts today so I hope you will look around.  This afternoon I'm showing some new peeks for Waltzingmouse that you're not going to want to miss.   Today I'm playing with The Challenge.  A new two week challenge begins today.  Not familiar with The Challenge?  Time to check it out!!  It was started by Lesley Croghan and is hosted on her blog Always Playing with Paper.  Lesley is the creative genius behind so many wonderful challenges and this one is no exception. 

Here's the inspiration photo for this time!  You can work with the sketch or the color palette, or you can mix them both together like I did.  That splat in the center can represent any image.   I will admit as soon as I saw the colors - Navy, Aqua, White and Gray, my first thought was Nautical!!   I decided to ink up the Nouveau Flower set from Clearly Besotted.   I love that you can stamp in layers in any color combination you like.  Perfect for this challenge.
