Inspired by...Purple Onion Designers!

Hi folks! Today is a special edition of "Inspired by..." Each weekend I plan to feature a fellow Purple Onion (POD) design team member's creation as my inspiration. I hope you enjoy. :) Today's featured artist is the ultra talented Joy Taylor. You can check out more of her awesome cards on her BLOG and PHOTOSTREAM. She even has one incredible technique video which can be seen HERE. So without further ado, here is Joy's inspiration card:

This card is the perfect example of Joy's timeless style! I love how she always pays such close attention to the details like the beautiful row of orange pearls and the impeccable coloring of the orange slice. And did you see the dimension on that orange slice!? So cool! Finally, the embossed background makes for a wonderful, textured back drop for the center panel.
Here is my take: Thanks so much for looking! I hope you enjoyed today's special edition of "Inspired by..." HUGS! -Jill

All Stamps Purple Onion Designs: Bare Tree, Blossom Sentiment (Seasonal Words), Leaves and Flowers (Hang in There), Grass (Stems and Grass Set)
