With this card, I'm playing along with the Verve Diva Dare Challenge.  The inspiration photo is fabulous and I was definitely inspired.
I love the brick wall, and I got a brick stencil for Christmas that I hadn't gotten to play with yet.  This was the perfect time to break it out.
I also went with the flowers and the chalkboard art on the wall.  So many great elements in that photo.
