Bring May Flowers

Woooohooooo!!!! It's Friday - finally :)))  Not only is it the start of another glorious weekend, but it's challenge time again over at Guylou's Inimitability!!!  We have such an awesome challenge for you this week hosted by our very own, very talented Brenda!  Bren is uber talented and such a great person - if you have a few minutes, you seriously must go check out her blog.  Trust me - you won't be disappointed you did!!

So on to our challenge.  This week, Brenda's challenge is a color challenge with a fun little twist of adding some flowers (e.g. primas) to your project!  So what's the color scheme you ask?  Check these out:
LOVE 'em right???  When I saw the color palette I knew right away that I wanted to make a card using Guylou's fabulous Gabrielle image to cheer up a friend of mine that is going through some pretty difficult times right now.  I'm not exactly sure what I'll say to to make her feel better, but I'm hoping that this will at least help bring a smile to her face, if only for a moment:

The winner will be awarded two digistamps of her or his choice from Guylou's Inimitability Store and will also be invited to be a Guest Designer on an upcoming challenge.  You have until June 2nd to play along with us and I can't wait to see your creations :))
