Inspired by...Anne!

It's my favorite day of the week...I get to announce the next "Inspired by..." stamper! :) So up next is.... Anne Gaal (prospuring on flickr)! Anne is an amazing artist in so many ways--from cardmaking, to photography, to digi scrapbooking---Anne does it all! You MUST check out her BLOG and PHOTOSTREAM.
Here is our first GORGEOUS inspiration card from Anne:
This card is such stunner! I love the distressed dandelion frame stamped in blue! The soft colors contrast perfectly with the warmth of the butterflies (which, by the way, are colored to perfection). The sentiment stamped on the ribbon is a great designer touch. And finally, Anne's use of the label die cut shape is genius!

Here is my take:Thanks so much for stopping by! Oh, be sure to check out the CURRENT CHALLENGE on Anne's blog to make a card inspired by one of hers! I will definitely be entering a couple of mine this week!! :)

I'm looking forward to another week of wonderful inspiration here with you and Anne! You are off to a great start with these fabulous designs. I just love the label moved off the side of the card, it's really an effective design feature. I finally have some time to work on a CASE of my favorite of Anne's cards.
