Inspired by...Sanne!

Hi! I hope everyone had a nice weekend! Our next featured artist is multi talented and I just love the way she combines traditional stamping with digi images, too! Please welcome..... Sanne! To find loads of inspiration, be sure to visit her BLOG and PHOTOSTREAM! Okay, here is our first inspiration card by Sanne: I just adore the beautiful blue of this card! It is incredible the way Sanne sanded the embossed background to add texture and a subtle variation in the color of the paper. Her butterfly is shaded to perfection. Finally, the thin ribbon is a delicate detail which suits this card amazingly!

Here is my take. I was especially inspired by Sanne's monochromatic color scheme and her beautiful blue butterfly!

Yes, I just can't get enough of these post card cards. :) I hope I am not boring you! I have had a few questions about the post card background. It is an element in THIS Michelle Underwood kit. I just insert it into Microsoft Word, resize it to my liking, and then print it on white cardstock.
See you tomorrow with another lovely card by Sanne! Thanks again for all of your sweet, sweet comments! You always make my day!
