CAS 06 Water Lilies

Each month the Encouragement Squad hosts an encouragement challenge on the Calling All Sistahs blog.  And, each month I am blown away by the inspiration photo Michele chooses and the design team's incredible work.  I have to admit though, this one just might be my favorite.  It is so soft and feminine and pretty, plus the pink colors are perfect for breast cancer awareness month. 

Here is how I interpreted the photo.  You can use the photo or the colors or both for your inspiration to make a card of encouragement.  I took the 3 candles and the flower and morphed them into 3 water lilies on my card.  I also added a water background with some aqua markers to mimic the water in the bowl.  Obviously I strayed a bit from the original color palette, but that's ok.  I am in LOVE with this card.  It fits my style. The embossing powder has a touch of rose glitter to it that is so pretty in person.
