It's Sassy Tuesday!!! Are you ready for an Inspiration Challenge?

Today our hostess for the Sassy Cheryl's Challenge is Dawn Lusk, a very talented DT member I have followed for a long time.  Dawn chose an Inspiration Challenge and provided a very brightly colored picture with black and white cat bordered on the lower and side sections with lots of flowers.  Here is what I came up with:
This is just the cutest summer image called Watermelon Bee,  I don't know why I haven't colored it before.  I wanted to keep the colors summery. 
On my trip to Kansas City last week I got a few minutes to go shopping at JoAnn's, their store is soooo much better than the ones in Omaha.  They were having a half price sale on their paper packs.....yes..I DO need more paper....have you been talking to my daughter?  LOL  The dp used here is from the DCWV Pockets full of Posies Paper Pack.  The matte behind the main image is also from a stack pack by DCWV called Cafe Mediterranean. 
I added a white cs panel behind the image and matt to make it stand out a bit more. 
The Watermelon Bee was colored with copic markers and sponged with TH broken china distress ink.
There is a variery of prima flowers and 3 MS punched butterflies. 
Be sure to check out what the rest of the DT has created.  I know you will find lots of inspiration.

Sassy Cheryl's has a whole bunch of new images released with the challenge too.  Be sure to check out the store.

Thanks for stopping by, 

Have a great day.
