Inspired by...Franziska

Hi everyone and welcome to another week of "Inspired by..." creations. Our featured artist this week is Franziska (Franziska2010 on flickr). I love Franziska's earthy style and beautiful collage stamping. This is the first card of Franziska's that I saw and I guess you can say the rest is history. :)

The colors and layers on this card are outstanding! I love the rich, golden yellow with the unexpected purple leaf. Wouldn't this make the perfect fall/Thanksgiving card? This card, especially the stamped center panel, is like a mini painting ready to be framed!
Here is my take:Thanks soooo much for stopping by. I can't tell you how much your kindness and encouragement mean to me! HUGS, HUGS, HUGS! :)
Stamps: Hero Arts (CL342, CL298, K5344, S5316); Splatter (All Night Media), Leaf (Making Memories)
