Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge

Hi there!
Welcome to another Sensational Saturday at Sugar Creek Hollow. We want you to make vintage, shabby chic or primitive cards featuring something that "was inspired by a photo" and include your photo in your post - fun fun fun!

I found this gorgeous pic of lilacs over on Pinterest!

have a wonderful weekend!

Beautiful! I love the Lilacs and can't wait for them to bloom, but funny how I do not like it when they make the scent into candles and sprays. This is colored to perfection!

Wow, is this ever stunning. I can't imagine how long it took you to colour the lilacs and make then so real looking. I can't wait until spring comes so I can see and smell the lilacs in my back yard - you have given me something to look forward to.
