Inspired by... Anette!

I am so excited to share Anette's fabulous cards over the next few days. She has an amazing knack for creating fun cards with great combinations of colors! Be sure to hop over to PHOTOSTREAM to see all of her lovely creations!
Check out this great card by Anette:
I adore this vibrant flower. Anette's shading makes it appear as if it is glowing from the center. The subtle text background helps the big flower remain the star of the show! This is just such a fresh, cheery card that is destined to bring a big smile to its recipient.
Here is my take:
Thanks again for stopping by, my friends! See you tomorrow!
