Just Because....

When inspiration strikes, my experience tells me to run with it! If I try to go in another direction, I'm often less happy with my results, so I try to get my ideas on paper as soon as they hit me. When Shannon gave us the colours for this month's challenge, I immediately recalled this little icon:

Now, if you've visited the Verve Gallery, then you'll probably recognize it as the Gallery Icon Julee created! Honestly, there is just so much inspiration there! The flourish is from "Filigree Fantasy" and I saw Soft Sky! I added the rest of the colours in the same fashion; a sentiment from "Fluttering By", a few gems and voila, the card was done! Thanks for the inspiration Julee!


So, are you up to the challenge? Well of course you are...these colours are so yummy! When you've made your amazing colour challenge creation, link it up to this post, by May 31st, and you could win a $15 Verve Shopping Spree! Go ahead and show off your Verve Visual stamps! (if you have them, but it's not a requirement.) The winner will receive a $15 shopping spree at the Verve store.
