Art is handcrafted with {heart}



The Play Date Cafe's challenge this week is based off of the picture above. Lively rich colors are what this challenge is all about. And is that flower just not the best? I had to really scrounge around my studio to come up with the colors as my style is more the pastels. This image just spoke to me... love it! So, here is what I came up with.


The stamps and gears are Tim Holtz and the flower is prima. All new items I picked up at Michaels yesterday. ~:0) Infact I saw that flower and immediately thought of this challenge. I hope I did it justice.

Thank you for spending some of your time with me.
I love my visitors!!
