Kathy *Day 6*

Our last card by Kathy is so unique:

I love the way she added the swirls of smoke from the chimney! Her cute house looks so warm and cozy against the dark blue paper! The embossed background is the perfect touch of texture. Finally, the polka dot ribbon ties in all of the colors. This would make such a perfect card to send someone after visiting their home for the holidays!


Here is my take on Kathy's awesome card. I was really inspired by her dark, rich colors.

A special thanks to Kathy for letting me share her amazing cards this week! If you are in need of more inspiration, be sure to check out her blog, The Daily Marker. See you tomorrow, my friends, with a special "Inspired by..." post. ;)

Oh Jill, I love the way your card looks like leather. Warm and soft to the touch. Rich, worn colors. Just uber-yummy. Thank you so very much for the lovely card I received in the mail too! I twice as nice IRL! Hugs, the Oz

That is an amazing background you created with the Antique Brocade, looks like a fresco in an old villa. The scalloped border and stitching add the perfect amount of interest.
Thanks so much for the Kathy and Jill inspiration this week!
