Inspired by

As all crafty people know, we can find inspiration just about anywhere.  My card today was inspired by my inbox!  Well, more actually by a card in my inbox, made by Tammy Hershberger.  Her card is here.  Isn't it beautiful?  In her comments, I asked if it would be OK to CASE her card.  She said I could!  :)  So, here is my version, inspired by hers:

Of course, I tried to match the colors of the challenge Tammy made her card for as best I could.  I don't have the stamp set she used, so I decided to make my own flowers using the smallest flower on the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die.  To make the leaves, I cut the daisy-looking flower from the same die.  I used Spun Sugar, Tumbled Glass, Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint distress inks to color them all.  I added green Stickles to the leaves,and a teeny bit of Star Dust to the edges of the flowers.  You can't really tell, but I added a layer of dryer sheet to the flower before the top layer.  I used some of my large collection of bling to mimic Tammy's placement of enamel dots.  The sentiment comes from the Greetings set from The Paper Company.  The dp is from the Fine and Dandy Girl pad by MME.

Well, I hope everyone likes my version of Tammy's card as much as I liked hers!  Take care!  :)



  1. Marie, I LOVE how you made your flowers! They're beautiful, and how clever to use dryer sheets to make them extra gorgeous, along with the sparkle! Your card is beautiful, and thanks so much for the chance to inspire you. I'm flattered and honored!
