Carole *Day 3*

Here is our next inspiration card by Carole:

Okay, pick your jaw up off the floor, my friends!! :) Isn't this awesome?? I love the beautiful butterfly sitting on that great background. The background reminds me of an abstract painting--so fun and unique and not often seen on cards! Carole also has created a lovely balance to this card by combining stickers, stamping, and embellishments!

Here is my take:Thanks again for stopping by!
Supplies--Stamps: Butterfly (Hero Arts Digi Kit Winged Friends), Background Patterns (Martha Stewart), Sentiment (Inkadinkado), Leaves (Amy Butler); Ink: Distress Ink (Tim Holtz/Ranger), Black Ink (Stampin' Up), VersaMark; Other: Dimesional Adhesive (All Night Media), Misc. Cardstock and Thread, Clear Embossing Powder (JoAnn's Craft Essentials)

Hi, Jillian! This card is absolutely STUNNING! I love the splattery background, with a hint of leaves, and the dark edge vignetting. I love the bright butterfly and the pop of orange that sets it off. This is tremendous! :-)

As the sentiment on your fabulous card says...you certainly do Inspire everyday! Carole's card is so wonderful and I'm really loving her style. I love how you took her color scheme and the butterfly and totally made it your own. I love the background and the fun panel under the butterfly...gorgeous!!
