Clare *Day 6*

Here is our last inspiration card by Clare: I love the beautiful simplicity of this design! The black, white, and teal color combo really draws attention to the beautiful image. Clare's nontraditional color for leaves is so eye-catching! I also love the way Clare layered her torn edge against the black cardstock which adds to the texture and handmade feel of the card! Finally, I can't think of a better embellishment than one of Clare's bows!

Here is my take. I was especially inspired to dig out an older Hero Arts tree image that I haven't used nearly enough! And I was inspired to go with few nontraditional teal leaves!


Thanks for looking and commenting, too! :) You all bring me so many smiles!! Thanks especially to Clare for allowing me to share her MAGNIFICENT creations this week!

Love both of these cards so much!! You each had your own way of making the trees really sparkle with color! Beautiful on the background stamping and the colors near the sentiment, coordinates so well with the top of the card!
