Dottie's World Challenge - Inspire Me!

It was my turn to set the challenge this week at Dottie's World and I decided to look to a photograph for inspiration. I chose this NOT because they are cakes, oh no! but because I just loved the combination of colours. The DT girls all came up with fabulous examples and here is mine.
I used this gorgeous Magenta paper, the beautiful Holly in the Garden from the Holly and Madison Downloads available here, and some of those lush Prima French Can-ection flowers. I coloured Holly with Copics, added some Glossy Accents here and there and a touch of brown gingham ribbon. The sentiment was done on my computer.
I'm going to Maddy's Copic workshop today, so off to find a cupcake to eat them I'm gone. See ya!
