For my mum

Hello! I want to share with you my card for Melissa Phillips latest photo inspiration challenge, based off this gorgeous photo from A Creative Mint.



I couldn't decide if the blue in the photo was more aqua or light blue, so I just went with light blue. I was inspired by some of the graphic details on the papers and the beautiful pink flowers.



Thanks for looking!
Melissa
