Taking Time to Smell the Flowers

Wow... it's been just over a month since my last post.  I can't believe how time as flown by!  I've been out towards Chicago for some work training the last two weeks and before that I just couldn't finish a project I was happy with - maybe it was the stress of all that I'd be getting into at work once my training was over ;)  But when I finally got back in to my craft space today, the project  seemed to flow out of my head really easily and I finished something I was happy with -

I just love the paper packs that My Minds Eye comes up with.  This one is a little older, but I still love the bright colors.  I normally decide on my paper before coloring in the images, but this is one I colored before I left and didn't like how it was fitting in with my plan.  When I got back and saw it laying on my desk, I knew I had to use it.  I like when things work out like that ;D

Since this is a well loved paper pack, I didn't have enough of some of the papers to replicate the layout of the front on the inside, so I used some of those same papers and kept with the flower them:

The card was made for the March Some Odd Girl Sketch challenge - 

I'm so glad to be back in my craft room and getting things done!!

Have a great week!
