Agata *Day 3*

I find this next card by Agata simply breathtaking: Aren't ALL of those flowers beautiful?! I love that Agata used text on the flowers and kept them white! The ever so light distressing on the edges give them great dimension, too! The woodgrain on the flower pot adds visual interest. Finally, I find it so amazing how Agata created this neutral card that really packs a punch and is so eye catching.

Here is my take. I was especially inspired by Agata's text flowers in white.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks also for all of your lovely comments, my friends! I seriously can't tell you enough how much you ALL make me SMILE! :)

Oh, and I nearly forgot, I've had a few questions about the marker holders in my craft room--I got them at Michaels (very inexpensive) and they are made by a company called "Simply Built."

Oh.....I love, love, love your card! Those tulips are so beautiful - I think every card would be gorgeous with these, but I'm a huge fan of blue and chocolate - can't explain it, just am. :) xx
