Inspiration found!

Inspiration really can be found all around us!
I had some time to play this morning before I had to leave for my work outside of the home and was inspired to start on the VERVE challenge for May's 1st week.  This is the sketch we have been provided for guidance on this Vive la Verve challenge with a twist, the twist being to create a card using an inspiration in your home.  Well, anyone that knows me, even just a little, knows that I love flowers.  I always have my windowsills dressed with a flowerpot or three and plants in them.  I love ferns also, but these little mini kalanchoes are currently in my family room window and I have been enjoying them for over a month now, so this was my inspiration for this first week's challenge.  Hope you are inspired today with the abundance that nature provides to us each and every day!
For the little flower pots, I free hand cut them from a coffee sleeve from WF and painted them with white liquid pearls and then went over the dried surface with a Copic marker for a bit of a yellow sheen.
