Stampersuzz *Day 2*

**If you are looking for my card for Lucy's monochromatic card challenge, it is below this first beautiful card by Sue.**

If you have an account on flickr you are going to want to immediately add this card of Sue's to your favorites (just click on the picture and it will link you to flickr):

Everything about this card is amazing- I don't know where to start! The sentiment is so touching along with the beautiful scene! I would seriously frame this and hang it up!! Sue-- you have outdone yourself!!

Here is my take. I was also inspired by Lucy's challenge to make a card with a monochromatic color scheme.Thanks for stopping by! Oh, I almost forgot, what do you think of the new blog design!? The amazingly talented and sweet Kristina Proffitt designed it for me. If you are thinking of a 2010 blog makeover, be sure to check out her designs HERE.
