Inspired by... Vanessa!

Hi everyone! Hope you all had a nice weekend! My summer break starts today (I'm a teacher) and I am so excited to have lots of time to stamp! :) WAHOO!
Okay, on to the fun stuff. This week's "Inspired by..." stamper is the queen of elegance---Vanessa! I have admired Vanessa's cards for a loooong time and am so glad she is allowing me to share some of her work. Be sure to check out Vanessa's BLOG and PHOTOSTREAM for tons of inspiration and eye candy. Here is today's card by Vanessa:Vanessa's paper piecing on this card is magnificent! I love the sweet polka dot paper on the flowers. How creative! The tone-on-tone stamping in the background provides great pattern and texture. Finally, Vanessa adds her signature elegant style to this card with the perfectly placed pearls.
Here is my take:Thanks for popping by! I hope your week is off to a great start. :)
