Carole *Day 6*

Today is our last day of inspiration with Carole. Be sure to check out her blog and photostream for more of her FABULOUS designs! I love the teal and green color scheme Carole has used on this card! She has created the perfect mix of patterned paper AND stamping! And the pretty bow with button and twine is such an appealing embellishment. Finally, the overall design of this card is one of beauty and balance. Carole, I just can't get enough of your cards!

Here is my take:Thanks again everyone for stopping by this week and leaving such heartfelt comments. You always make my day!!! And, BIG thanks to Carole for allowing me to share your works of art in my little corner of blogland. :)

Supplies--Stamps: Butterflies (Hero Arts Digi Kit Winged Friends), Flourish (Hero Arts CG119), Sentiment (Hero Arts CL156), Leaves (Amy Butler); Ink: Distress Ink (Tim Holtz/Ranger), Black Ink (Stampin' Up); Other: Misc. Cardstock, Scallop Square Punch (EK Success for Stampin' Up), Stickles (Ranger), Pearls (Recollections)
