Simple Pleasures

I made this card for the current Be Inspired Challenge #54. I love the soft and pretty colors of the inspiration photo. Based on the colors I used a green and white polka dot paper for the background layer. Then I made a yellow and pink watercolor for the smaller background of the die cut. I used watercolor crayons to color the background and the topiary. I used Versamark Black Archival ink. I used two different stamp sets from The Alley Way Stamps. The topiary is from the Tweet Spots stamp set and the sentiment is from Tiny Treasures. The dies are Spellbinders Nestabilities. Thanks for stopping by!

Here is the inspiration photo.

Here is my card.
