Inspired by Stamping Challenge #50

Inspired by Stamping offers an inspiration challenge every Thursday (Queensland, Australia time). The challenge lasts for one week, then a new photo is revealed! Here is the photo/color combination for this week's challenge!

 What soft, pretty colors! Just perfect for spring and Easter.

I had a hard time combining pale pink, blue, and green. Mostly because I was away at a craft retreat and had limited papers with me! But, I pulled it off! The blue is very subtle on the polka dot paper!

I colored the fantastic roses from the Flowers Bloom set with Copic markers. I stamped a sentiment from the NEW Beautiful Iris set.

I created a bow with the lovely colonial rose satin ribbon (available in the IBS store).

One randomly selected winner this week will receive a $15 gift card to the Inspired by Stamping Store! To be eligible to win, please follow the rules below.
