Crafty Creations #26- Inspiration from ESTY

First and Foremost I have to Welcome our four new Design Team members. It is soooo Exciting to have so many very talented ladies with us at Crafty Creations. We were only planning on two, but had too hard of a time choosing. So we brought it down to 4 and had to keep them all. Hehe. So please welcome,
Ann (Raindrop Echo Designs)
Mandy (Diaries of a craftaholic and demented housewife)
Claire (Crafty Bits by Hope Jacare)
Shelly (Shellys Card Blog)
You will agree very talented ladies and I would like to thank all who vied for the DT spots all of your work was wonderful. And I hope to be able to continue to enjoy it every week with your challenge submissions. THANK YOU!

Now for this challenge you are directed to Lauren Alexander's blog as her store is closed till the second of August. I was able to get to the ESTY store before it closed and all I have to say is wow. I saved the image i used as inspiration. Please don't copy it as I am only posting it so you know what I used as my inspiration and it is Lauren's work not my own. I hope you are able to check out her store as she is very resinably priced.

I saw this little print and I thought of my Turtles stamp. Love this image and i don't use it enough. The colors and Background for the card were also inspired from the above image. Turtle stamp- RAM

Colors of inks and Papers (All CTMH)- Dutch blue, Ocean, Clover meadow, sunny Yellow, Watermelon, Orange

Yellow Waxy flax - CTMH

Epoxy tag from Making Memories.

I think I want to add flowers to the side yet, but think it might look too busy so I will post it if I do. These were some very bright colors for me, i am usually a bit mellower. hehe.
