Pinter-Inspriation challenge

Happy Friday! Last month, we let the cat out of the bag and told you that once in a while we'd usher in what we called a Pinter-inspiration challenge. We're getting on the Pinterest bandwagon and even have a Flourishes page HERE showing not only all of our sets but cards and techniques that inspire us! So, today's Pinter-inspiration is one inspired by the website Design Seeds. Here's a peek at what they do!!!
They take an image and then, produce a color palette taken from the gorgeous photo! You'll have to check out their website HERE for their literal daily inspiration! I could literally spend hours on their site!
HOW TO PLAY! So, do you want a chance to win Flourishes entire March Release? All you need to do is be inspired by the color palette above and use it in a creation! Once you are done, just link up here using the inlinkz widget and you will be in the running. You have until Friday, March 16th at 5PM EST to enter! Use Flourishes stamps if you have them, but if you don't -- play along anyway -- you would win some! The winner will receive all three sets and our new Tailor-made die that will be unveiled in our newest release starting NEXT WEDNESDAY! If you upload to Splitcoaststampers, don't forget to use the keyword MAR12PIN! Good Luck!

For my creation I used two shades of purple and one of the green. I really like this site for a color scheme I plan to go there a lot more. This flower is from With Gratitude, I really do enjoy coloring these flowers. Still have some of my new edge scraps left so I added that with some solid wrinkled white ribbon to tie off my bow. Fairly simple and easy going today. The house has been busy so easy peasy is great for me. ha! Hope you can play along with us. Be sure to check out the other designers creations today:

You call it easy peasy, I call it beautiful. I haven't inked this set yet, but you certainly have inspired me to do so. Beautiful.
