Special Reason for Freshly Made Sketches

I really liked the sketch for the challenge over at Freshly Made Sketches this week, so I wanted to make sure I made some time in my schedule to fit it in and I got the opportunity yesterday. I also had the opportunity to use one of my newer stamp sets that I haven't yet had time to ink up - Special Reason! This set coordinates and bundles with a set of dies called the Stylish Stems Framelits, but I didn't want to use those today and will highlight them another time.

Here's the sketch for the challenge:

The triptych element in the front is what fascinated me about the sketch and I wondered about how I could design those. I finally decided on a stamped collage divided into 3 panels and mounted on a backing panel. With all the snow (Oh, my goodness - what a dump!) we had this weekend, I worked hard to make it spring-like and chose these colours:

Here's a closer look:

This is really lovely! I love the soft combination of colours you've used and the panels you've created with your stamping. Thanks for joining us at FMS this week!
