Growth

I am so glad I got to play along with CSI's challenge this week!  The colors were so beautiful.  When looking at the pallet we had to work with, I thought of these photos I took with my macro lens during a snowfall we had a couple of weeks ago.  The pink in the rose bud matched perfectly to the pallet.  I thought the other, softer colors played well with a winter flower.

I incorporated a circle in the overall design and then reinforced by the flowers, button and gems.  I used a tag for the journal/title spot.  The sheer ribbon was a good way to add the lavender, and the stick pin, which I made from coordinating beads, adds the gold metal elements.  I also chose to journal about growth being found even in the bleak winter months. I used a sketch by Sketches in Thyme and I think that is Thyme, which is dormant, represented in one of the photos.
