Inspired by...Lucy!!

I am thrilled to introduce this week's "Inspired by..." stamper-- it's Lucy! If you haven't checked out Lucy's work you may be living under a rock! :) Just kidding! But seriously, you must visit her BLOG and PHOTOSTREAM! It is such an honor to share her work here on my humble blog-o, so without further ado, here is our first inspiration card by Lucy:

Are you drooling? I know I am! I love the red on this card! The butterfly is colored beautifully. The soft text in the background adds an elegant feeling as does the center panel with gems. Finally, Lucy's signature string embellishment is FAB!
And here is my take. I was really inspired by that beautiful, bold, red butterfly:

Thanks for stopping by! I hope your week is off to a great start. :) See you tomorrow with another GORGEOUS creation by Lucy!
