May Challenge at The Four Seasons

It's a new month, and time for a beautiful new challenge over at The Four Seasons Challenge Blog.  This month's inspiration photo gives you lots of options and you can let ANY part of the photo spark your creativity.  As long as it fits the "season", which is obviously Spring; you can share ANY art you create during the month of May.  We look forward to seeing what this pretty photo will inspire YOU to create.
My eyes were immediately drawn to the pretty purple lilacs and pink roses.  Flowers always make me think of my Mom, so this card was created with her in mind.  I didn't have a nice Mother's Day sentiment (out of ALL my stamps...can you believe that?) so instead I used her favorite Bible verse.  The sentiment stamp is found in the Words of Encouragement Stamp Set from Stamp Simply Clear Stamps.
I did some simple water coloring using Lilac and Concord Oxide Inks and then stamped the flowers using a (retire) PTI stamp set called Petite Pots.  The basket is a die-cut from The Greetery.  The background patterned paper is from Whimsy Stamps' Fabulous Florals 6x6 Paper Pad.  I think that covers everything; but feel free to ask any questions.
On behalf of all of us at The Four Seasons Challenge Blog, thank you for sharing your wonderful art with us. We're ALL super excited to see the cards and projects you'll create to share with us this month.  Thanks for stopping by today, and have a great week.

I'm sharing my card in these FUN challenges where I love to play along whenever I possibly can:
