This week's Just Add Ink challenge invites lots of flowery goodness.  We have an inspiration pic for you - and you may choose whatever from the graphic that inspires you.  No need to go 'floral' - it might be the colours, or watercolour effect, that jump out at you.   Here's the "jumping off" point:

Although the gorgeous daisies are white with yellow centres, I've used a bit of creative licence on my card.  I have had a coloured panel on my desk for weeks, just waiting to be added to a card - until I came to create this card, I just wasn't sure how to use it.  My flowers are yellow with white centres.  To be truthful, when I originally coloured the flowers using my Blendabilities, the flower centres were orange.  I've used my white chalk marker, and white gel pen, to re-colour the centres for this challenge!  The fabulously useful tiny die-cut butterfly hides an ink smudge.  Love that. :)

I'm very happy with the way this card turned out.  Isn't the sentiment gorgeous?  I've kept it all pretty simple, for a nice, fresh, happy look.

Make sure you check out the rest of the Just Add Ink Design Team's creations; we have loads of talent on the team, and love sharing what we make.
