Anne *Day 4*

Here is today's inspiration by Anne:

Anne's card is amazingly bold and artistic! I so admire her skills! I love the way she has added water splotches and trails in the distress ink. It goes perfectly with the dandelion frame stamp. The colors of this card make me smile and the touch of ribbon and border punch at the bottom add a lovely finishing touch!
Here is my take:Thanks again for stopping by and for leaving such SWEET and KIND comments. I don't think I can tell you enough--THANK YOU! :)
Supplies-- All Stamps Hero Arts (Digi Kit Winged Friends, CL351, CG146); Ink: Distress Ink (Tim Holtz/Ranger), Black Ink (Stampin' Up); Other: Misc. Cardstock and Thread, Border Punch (Martha Stewart), Metallic Decor (Hero Arts)
