Chick n Lil's Photo-Inspired Card Challenge

My friend, Pam, is having a fun challenge on her blog! Her daughter (chick n lil) took this gorgeous pic & the challenge is to use it as inspiration!

So here's what I came up with:

The stamps are Amuse- the yellow ink is brilliance sunflower yellow. I added the prismacolor pencil to try to capture the look of the zinnia in the pic....

spellbinders embossed frame finishes it off!
And for those of you that saw Had's stamping yesterday- here's the finished product!

Yes, her 'J' is backwards, but she didn't ask for any help with any of the words! And that's the TV with the heart on it- you can see she tried to fit 'at fred M' (short for Fred Meyers)- it's an ad on the tv!! (and she's got cocoa!)
and here's a painting she did at Christmas time:

I just thought it was soo cute, so it's still hanging in her art display...!
Thanks so much for stopping by- don't for get to play in Pam's challenge- you've got until the 25th! (I suggest you stay & check out her other posts too- she's a great stamper & always cracks me up!)
And there's still time to enter the May Arts weekend giveaway!!!
