Merry Monday # 179

Welcome to another
Deanne has chosen a beautiful picture to inspire you using PINK, GREEN AND WHITE!


As soon as I saw this, I knew I wanted to use those cute bottle brush trees from Papertrey.
I have a friend who has a collection of these and they are ALL colors, so really anything goes with those trees!
Here is the photo for your inspiration:
 
stamps:  PTI Joyful Wishes
Ink:  PTI sweet blush, soft stone (trunk) hibiscus burst (star & sentiment)
watercolor paint for background 
Pretty Pink Posh sequins:  lime sorbet and pink blush

It was about time I think you Always played along with them and you often won and/or got into the honorable mentions. So great to see you in the design team. It's such a pity I can't find the time anymore to play along Always loved it.
