Inspired by...Barb!

I am thrilled to announce the next "Inspired by..." stamper. She has heaps of talent and is one of the best flickr cheerleaders---it's Barb (bdengler4)! Make sure you hop over to her PHOTOSTREAM and check out all of her lovely creations!

Here is our first inspiration card from Barb:
Isn't Barb's coloring to die for?! I love those springy daisies and the distressed background is so bold! The vibrant colors are extremely happy and energetic! And the striped background is the perfect amount of pattern behind Barb's dimensional center panel.

Here is my take. After seeing Barbs BOLD flowers with the distressed background I just had to create a BIG bold flower, too! And her distressing inspired me to bring out one of my new Hero Arts cling stamps-Aged Pring Frame (CG154).Thanks again for stopping by! I can't wait to share more of Barb's cards with you! :)

Supplies--All Stamps Hero Arts (Sentiment C2962, Aged Print Frame CG154, Flower CG141); Ink: Black Ink (Stampin' Up), Distress Ink (Tim Holtz/Ranger); Other: Glitter (Martha Stewart), Pearls (Recollections), Dimensional Adhesive (All Night Media), Misc. Cardstock and Thread
