Sarah *Day 3*

Here is our next inspirational card by Sarah: Where do I begin??!! First of all, the red is striking against the warm golden background. Sarah has created the perfectly distressed backdrop to go with her perfectly colored flower. The text stamped diagonally on the background adds to the elegance of this card. Finally, the butterfly in the center of the flower brings this card to life with another layer of stamping and gorgeous color!

Here is my take:
Supplies--All Stamps Hero Arts (CL374, CG125, CL272, CL389); Ink: Distress Ink (Tim Holtz/Ranger), Black Ink (Stampin' Up), Markers (Martha Stewart and Copic R29), White Gel Pen (Sakura); Other: Scallop Punch (Fiskars), Dimensional Adhesive (All Night Media), Misc. Cardstock
