Barb *Day 2*

Here is our next card by Barb:

This is another example of Barb's amazing coloring and distressing skills! I love how her floral image seems to glow from behind. The lilac is colored with the most perfect shades of purple, pink, and lavender. And did you see the subtle stamping in the background? Such an elegant touch!

Here is my take:
