Paper Smooches Picture Perfect Challenge

I got my Christmas shopping done just in time. One day before Christmas eve. LOL, yep, I just got my shopping done yesterday and today I am mailing my last batch of Christmas cards. Hah... I know it's bad, but hey, better late than never, right?

Well, today I have non-Christmasy card for you for Paper Smooches SPARKS picture perfect challenge. Here's the inspiration pic:

From this pic, I took the text and the canvas monochromatic tone and the stagger arrangement of the vase. Here's my translation of the pic:

This actually is my second attempt for this challenge. My first one, I wasn't happy with the result. Maybe it was just the lighting, but I just didn't feel right about it. Here's the 1st card I made for this challenge:

In person, yes you could see the text clearly, but in picture... not so much. I made the text by heat embossing the text and then colored it with soft blue copic marker to make it stands out a bit more. Anyway, I ended up deciding that I better re-do it.

I hope you will playing along with this challenge. You can check  out all the deets and find more inspiration at SPARKS blog. Thanks for stopping by here. :)
