PSC11 - Sweet Pea - Photo Inspired Nostalgia

Happy Sunday! This week's challenge on Paper Sundae is an Inspirational Challenge - get inspired by this photo and create!We have a fabulous prize for you this week - you can win 2 Sweet Peas stamp from Paper Jewels - the stamps the DT is featuring too.I was inspired by the blues and purples from the image and a touch of yellow, so I colored my Nostalgia image with these colors. I couldn't find any matching DP in my stash so I had to create one - I used a specialty paper from SU Bride papers and sponged it with Memento inks to get the colors I wanted. In places where I needed a darker hue I used the ink pad directly on paper. The white stitching is inspired by the dandelion pods blowing in the wind.
Hope you'll like it ;)

Gorgeous! The background sheet is amazing, you did an awsome job on that, and the colouring of the main image too is perfect. Great colour combo too.
