They chose a photo for the team to draw inspiration from. Here is what Jill and Felicia said to the team: “So for the challenge this is our photo inspiration, use the colors or a tree, whatever this photo inspires you to make!”
1-11 Photo Inspiration
This photo is entitled "Relax" and was taken in Charlotte, North Carolina’s Freedom Park by photographer Chris Summerville. When Jen contacted the photographer to obtain permission to use the photograph, she was informed that this photo was shot with an infrared lens -- so in actuality, those trees are green! Please take a moment to check out Chris Summerville’s other work. Truly breathtaking. Thank you Mr. Summerville for the permission to use such a striking piece of photography.

And here is what those crafty ladies on the Design Team came up with . . .
