I have decided to throw my hat in the ring and participate in the Viva La Verve challenges for the opportunity to win the Verve release. For the challenge, they provide a sketch and inspiration photos.
I chose this photo and gained inspiration from the colors, a great match for October Afternoon Farm Fresh papers. The card base is PTI's Rustic Cream, which has a little more of a country/ vintage look and texture.
The flower is from the Wishful Elegance set, it's so pretty. I just added a bit of blue to the border strip and in the airbrushing around the flower to soften the hard edges.
