Coloring Down the Lines - Lotus Blossom

I liked the colors in this week's challenge.  They remind me of spring, yet there's snow outside on the lawn, and yes, it's blustery.  Creating cards that remind me of Spring keep me going.  I don't mind Winter, but after the holidays, it's time to look forward to new birth, grass, leaves on the trees, and most of all, warm Spring breezes.

The color pallet we used for inspiration is shown below:

Perhaps the poppies in the photograph above are peeking out of a snow-covered ground.  It sure looks that way.

Here is my interpretation of the challenge...

Paper:  early espresso, crumb cake dsp, whisper white
Ink:  crumb cake, real red, calypso coral, pear pizzazz
Stamp Set:  lotus blossom (sale-a-bration)
Accessories:  early espresso ribbon
