Rainbow Love...Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #225~Photo Inspiration

Hello,

A warm, hearty welcome to the first challenge of 2017, with Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #225~Photo Inspiration. Gorgeous rainbow flower, sprinkled with the droplets of dew...oh my! The promise of new, sparkling, vibrant beginnings....


As I mentioned in a previous post, I'm besotted with Concord & 9th's Heart Strings die and Heart Smiles stamp set. They called to be used yet again. For all of you,  my wonderful friends, a rainbow ink-blended heart (I love ink-blending!)....


My teammates have some wonderful designs inspired by this photo; please be sure to visit over at ATSM.  Afterwards, join us in the gallery! I know this lovely image will spark outstanding creativity from all of you...

Thank you so much for spending time with me today; your visit brings me joy!
