I know I already posted today, but I just couldn't wait to share this card once it was finished.

My card is for the current challenge at Saturated Canary. The theme is "Inspired by a song" and this is my first time playing along. I adore Krista's beautiful and detailed images and they are SO much fun to colour!

When I looked through my images, "Hipster" was the second one I came to and I immediately thought of "Imagine" by John Lennon. I love this song!

Just trying to show some dimension. I crumpled and curled the edges of the die cute flower just slightly. I didn't end up adding a sentiment to this one since it seemed like too much work to incorporate it into the design I had going. Sometimes it's just nice to have a couple to add sentiments to later so I'm okay with it.

I would also like to share at the following challenges:
Our Creative Corner - pink + aqua + a flower - I may be pushing it here as there is lots of brown and another shade of blue, not sure...
Crazy 4 Challenges - use a BOW - I hope it's okay I've entered more than once, I use lots of bows!
Cute Card Thursday - something NEW - I used a new crocheted flower and  new papers

Have a great night! Thanks so much for stopping by!
