Bright and Pretty Inspired By #55

Hello! There's a new PRETTY photo to inspire you at Inspired By All the Little Things challenge #55.

I was totally inspired by the Oranges in this lovely bouquet and the the succulent looking blooms. For my card today, I stamped some images from a New company in the stamp world called, The Stamp Market. The set is named BLOOMED. Now how could I resist investing in this one, right?
The images in this set are solid, which are my favorite to color with ZIGGYs because the first layer of color is already laid down after stamping.
Here is a photo of the beginnings of my arrangement.

After coloring, I fussy cut the edge from the panel and layered it onto a piece of pattern paper from the Altenew Reflection Scrapbook Collection
I did brush some distress ink onto the paper to turn it green-ish blue.

Hope this inspires you to play along!
Can't wait to see how you are Inspired By!!
