Inspired by...Deirdre!

Welcome back to another week of "Inspired by..." cards! This week's inspiring artist is none other than Deirdre (Deirdre IRL on flickr)! I love Deirdre's simply elegant style and can't wait to share a few of her cards this week. And don't forget to pop by Deirdre's PHOTOSTREAM and BLOG to see more of her creations! Here is our first inspiration card by Deirdre:

The golden color scheme is what first caught my eye when looking at this card! Isn't it bold and beautiful?! I love how Dierdre has spotlighted the pretty flower on the circle. The text in the background adds to the elegant design. Finally, the simple ribbon embellishment finishes out this beauty perfectly!

Here is my take. I was especially inspired by Deirdre's color scheme and circle focal point.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek! See you tomorrow!
