Basic Grey and Caardvarks challenges

Have you seen the gorgeous inspirational photo on the lastest challenge over at Basic Grey? All I can say is "Wow!!"
As anyone whose house I've been transforming lately will know,these colours and this style are right at the top of my "go for it" list...

I was having a look at some challenge blogs which I've never visited before and fell in love with the beautiful sketch on the Caardvarks challenge so I decided to combine the two challenges.

The paper I've used is Basic Grey/ Nook and pantry which was sent to me by my dear friend Tara (thanks again!) and Making Memories/Pearl swirl..I Do.
The stems were made with an Xcut Impress border stencil in my Cuttlebug and the flowers with an Xcut punch.
Not my usual style but I think I could get to like it.
