Yumi & Fumi Handmade Challenge #25 - Photo Inspiration

Hi folks,

It's Sunday so that means I am sharing my Team Fumi creation for Challenge #25 over at the Yumi and Fumi Handmade Challenge Blog.

Challenge #25 is an Inspiration Photo challenge and you have until this coming Friday to link up your challenge entries at the Y&FH challenge post for a chance to win!

Here's a quick glimpse of the inspiration photo for you:

And here's my card:

I was obviously inspired by the colours! And maybe a little more subtly you can see how the table setting inspired my layout. - the table runner, the round flower arrangements with their alternating colours and even the little mini-cakes so nicely placed all in a a row. Of course, with those pretty lanterns I HAD to use an image from the Kimono series.
