Next challenge at Fairy Fun Fridays

Well Week 21 at Fairy Fun Fridays has a color inspiration challenge done by the picture shown under the sketch.  This image of a Lily from Prairire Fairy Designs was inspired by the picture of the flower, I used the rich tones of Elegant Eggplant, Tangerine Tango, Whisper White and Certainly Celery to bring it out.  I used mulberry paper for the soft wispy-ness of the scarf.  So I sort of used this as more inspiration than just the color.  Although the mulberry paper is very wispy there is a break between it behind the flower like the sketch from Mojo Monday 140 indicates.  I flipped a couple of the elements on the page to get the effect I wanted.  The challenge at Cute Card Thursday 114 was to use no designer paper, while at one time that would have been no problem for me I actually found it difficult this time.  I embossed the background paper and then rubbed metallic rub ons over the embossing to make it pop.  Delightful Sketches challenge this week was to use texture, acquired on this card by many layers, embossing, mulberry paper, ribbon, pop dot to raise circles and the pearl in the centre.  Spoon Full of Sugar's challenge 105 was for a celebration, what better reason to celebrate then for a birthday.

Love your take on this challenge, Kelly! Beautiful coloring on the lily and I think the addition of the mulberry paper is inspired!
