Inspired by... Stampin Sue!!

Hi everyone! And welcome to another week of stamping inspired by one fabulous artist--Susan McRae, also known as Stampin Sue on flickr. I just love checking out Susan's blog and her amazing photostream. One word that describes her cards is INNOVATIVE. Where Susan gets her ideas, I don't know, but she seems to have an endless reserve of creativity! Here is today's card by Susan:


First of all, check out that beautiful, woven background. Her flowers, which are the perfect shades of pink and yellow, are blended and appear so dimensional. Speaking of dimension, I love the cluster of flowers and leaves. All the elements on this card are positioned in such an appealing way!


Here is my take on Susan's card:


Thanks for stopping by! We'll see you tomorrow with more inspiration from Susan!
