NATURE is my bliss .. case file #139

case file #139 is open and ready to solve over at CSI 
to find out more info
below is how I solved this case ... 
I allowed the White, black and green to dominate
 with snippetts of blue and yellow. 
I followed Em's sketch slightly ...  focusing on the cluster .

flowers, butterfly, string,
 two of something (brads and flowers) , swirls and flourishes.

I chose to use the inspiration words as my prompts for my journaling. 
curious, two, perfect.
I have always been curious about nature. 
Blooms and Plants are perfect .
(journaling continued on the back of my LO ) 
As a child I had my very own little garden 
where I would tend lovingly to each beautiful bloom.
I had at least two different plots, 
one for blooms and one for vegetables .
I watched with excitement as each bloom came to life 
especially the pansies as they each had their own 
little face .
I would squeal with delight as the butterflies 
darted around with joy.
Nature is my bliss .
thanks for popping by and have fun solving this case 
see you next time.
