Inkspirations Challenge #91 - Me & DSP!!!

Hithere!  Are you ready for another Inkspirations challenge?  This week Keesh has a nifty sketch, with oodles of possibilities:-

I interpreted the large circle as a flower & the small one as a butterfly embellie:-

My fellow teammate, Brandi, inspired me to die-cut this bloom in DSP, something I never would have considered before.  I really struggle with DSP, so pushed myself to use three on this card.  You will note, however, that I chose three monotone prints.  Is that cheating?   lol

To see what the rest of the Team came up with for this super sketch, make sure you visit the links below:-

Wow, you really did push yourself outside your comfort zone with DSP, my friend! This is such a beautiful card; don't be afraid to use more DSP!!!!

You have done a great job with the DSP l think you chose really well and that flower looks fabulous in DSP, another great idea, thanks for the inspiration.

Hi Helen! thanks for your sweet comments on my blog. I could not tell you struggled with DSP by looking at this card! It looks so natural and put together! Way to go!
