Inspired By All The Little Things #40

I am the hostess over on the Inspired By All The Little Things challenge blog today, with my talented friend Donna Rudy as my guest designer.  Here is the inspiration photo that Donna picked to work with this week:
I was lucky enough to receive the newest Close To My Heart Cricut cartridge 'Flower Market' as a gift from my niece & sister this fall, and knew that there was a chrysanthemum diecut image on it.  I wasn't sure exactly how I'd use it, but ended up pulling out some distress inks, and used the negative from the die cut as a stencil.  I sponged a soft background, and added the pale pink diecut flower on top.  A little machine stitching and a sentiment from Verve finished it off:

Check out what Donna and the design team have to share with us this week over on the Inspired By blog, and be sure to link up your own creation!
