Barb *Day 4*

Here is today's inspiration card by Barb:Pretty, dainty, and feminine- this card is the epitome of all three! Barb's fantastic shading on the background flowers looks so realistic! The embossed background looks great, too! Finally, it's the little things that Barb always remembers which make this card outstanding-- rounded corners, pretty pearls, and delicious ribbon!
Here is my take. I was especially inspired by the overall layout of Barb's card. :)
Supplies--All Stamps Hero Arts (CL351, CG146, K5344); Ink: Distress Ink (Tim Holtz/Ranger); Other: Misc. Ribbon and Paper Flower, Butterfly Punch (Fiskars), Dimensional Adhesive (All Night Media), Metallic Decor (Hero Arts), Misc. Cardstock
