Inspiration Station Challenge #6

Hello and Happy Monday!  I trust your weekend was lovely and you enjoyed some time outdoors.  Today starts a new challenge at Inspiration Station and the inspiration photo is:

When I first saw the inspiration picture, I thought Vintage but I'm rubbish at Vintage, Shabby Chic or anything related to that style.  I'm all about color and my projects over the years certainly reflect that so I had to put my thinking cap on.  I came up with this:

I had a snippet of card left, from another project, that has a musical note design (and now that I look at it here, it appears I've placed it upside down - LOL) that became the base layer, I stamped, heat embossed, die cut, and ink blended over whimsical floral images from a Woodware Set and arranged a small cluster.  The sentiment strip is from the Tim Holtz Small Talk strip set.  

Please join us at The Inspiration Station this round, the challenge ends 06 June 2021 so there is plenty of time to get creative.  Until next time, Happy Crafting!
