Joys LIfe "Inspired By" Blog Hop

Thank you for stopping by to join us in the "Inspired By"
Joys Life Blog Hop. 
You should have arrived here from Laura's blog. Today I made a very colorful card inspired by the photo below. Mostly I was inspired by the colors in the photo and that is what I was using for my inspiration! I used two sets from Joys Life to create the "Happy Everything" sentiment. I used "Holiday Occasions" and "Everyday Occasions" sets. 

I made the flowers and the polaroid cut from the Silhouette studio files. I love the little flowers. My favorite is the larger blue one. I put some Imaginisce bling on a few of the petals. Lord you should have seen that bling fly everywhere when I was opening the new package cause I couldn't figure out how it opened! I purchased the one with multiple colors in the container. Well lets just say I know how it operates NOW! But I will be vacuuming up lots of little bling for a while. Hope you enjoy the hop!! 

This is my inspiration picture

Here is my project 
It isn't a card it is a cute little decorated chipboard for my desk. 
I think my Polaroid is really hard to see!
