Inspired by...Agata!

Hi everyone! Welcome to another week of "Inspired by..." creations! :) This week the featured artist is none other than the talented Agata! If you haven't checked out her PHOTOSTREAM and BLOG make sure you pop by as she is always sharing her awesome work!

Here is our first inspiration card by Agata: This vibrant card is just brilliant! The background is brimming with rich color and the lightly stamped flourish is subtle and pretty! I love the way Agata has stamped the center panel with text and that gorgeous floral image. The colors on the flowers really "pop!" This card is a STUNNER (but so are all of Agata's cards so I'm not surprised!).
Here is my take:
Thanks everyone for stopping by! I will see you tomorrow with another one of Agata's lovely creations!

Supplies--Stamps: Background (Hero Arts S5213), Text (Hero Arts K5344), Sentiment (Hero Arts CL272), Flowers (Tim Holtz), Postmark (Stampabilities), Postcard (Digi kit from Michelle Underwood available at twopeasinabucket.com); Ink: Distress Ink (Tim Holtz/Ranger), Black Ink (Stampin' Up); Other: Misc. Cardstock and Embroidery Floss, Stickles (Ranger)
