FBW145 On a Clear Day...

WOW...isn't that a spectacular photo! It makes me long for spring. The trees are blooming and the Daffodils are up here, but there is still that brisk chill in the air! This photo is our inspiration for this week's Flutter By Wednesday challenge. I love inspiration pieces because you can go so many different places with it. I was explaining to my 6 year old about the fact that my card doesn't have to be an exact replica of the photo...you just take inspiration from it! That is a rather abstract concept for a 6 year old, but I think she got it (mostly).

Well, I was struck by the daisies, so I went searching for some paper that had daisies in it. Lo and behold, I remembered that one of my favorite Basic Grey papers -- Euphoria -- had daisies in it. They aren't your typical daisies, but they are there! If you would like to join us in our challenge this week, you can find more details and upload your cards HERE.
