Deirdre *Day 5*

Hi everyone! Today is our last day of inspiration with Deirdre and I've got a stunner picked out for you. Check this lovely creation:This may just be one of the most elegant cards I've ever seen! I love the monochromatic color scheme. Deirdre's mix of patterns and textures is superb as well. The soft bow and beautifully framed focal point round out this excellent example of Deirdre's skill and creativity!

Here is my take: Thanks again for stopping by this week and thanks, Deirdre, for playing along! Be sure to check out Deirdre's BLOG and PHOTOSTREAM as she frequently uploads more eye candy! Hope you all have a beautiful weekend with family and friends!
Stamps: Vintage Butterflies (Purple Onion Designs), Sentiment (Hero Arts CL156), Polka Dots (Martha Stewart), Lace Background (Hero Arts S5341)
