Mo's Photo Inspiration Challenge

The very talented Dorcas is hostessing Mo Manning's challenge this week and is offering up this lovely inspiration photo.   I don't really need a wedding card at the moment, and to me the colors are the perfect embodiment of spring so that's the direction I took.
This cute little sweetie hugging her huge bunch of spring flowers is a favorite Mo Manning image but so far I had only used it for birthday cards. Silly me...it makes a most lovely Easter or spring card.  My photo is a bit overexposed but the pinks and yellows are quite lovely in person. 

CS:  Bazzill; dp BG  6" Two Scoops pad; digi image: Mo Manning's Bunches; Prismas and Copics, Embossing/cutting folder by Marianne Designables; Nesties circles and scalloped circles, SB classic bracket edgeability, flower and sentiment stamp from Michael's $1 bin; Kaisercraft pearls, pop dots.

  14. Kathlene,

    Thanks for your message over at Crafty Cardmakers. Unfortunately I have a link back tool set with Linky to prevent anyone who has not linked back to us at CCM from entering our challenges, as it's one of our rules. Sadly, since blogger decided to play silly beggers and give every country it's own specific country extension in the url of your blog, many countries were not matching the address I had put into linky. For example I had put craftycardmakers.blogspot.co.uk for linky to search for in posts of people attempting to enter their cards into our challenge. But people whose entries were coming from somewhere else were being blocked. Craftycardmakers, for example, read by a swedish blogger would be www.craftycardmakers.blogspot.se and the se extension in that case would be what was blocking the entry into the challenge. Your own post was directed to .com and that is what stopped you. Sorry to bore you with the ins and outs, lol, but I wanted to explain why you had been unable to enter!

    I have now added your card for you and have adjusted how the address will be searched for in future posts so you should hopefully not get the same problem again.

    I'm so glad we didn't end up missing out on seeing your gorgeous creation. I love the bright vibrancy of your colour palette and the way your embossing has been placed as debossing. So thank you for entering our Easter challenge.

    Happy Easter
