Inspired by...Purple Onion Designers!

Welcome to another special edition of "Inspired by..." where I will be featuring a fellow POD designer's work and my card inspired by them. Today's inspirational stamper is the super creative Jennifer Holmes. Make sure to check out her BLOG- it's loaded with inspiration! Here's Jennifer's inspiration card:I love Jennifer's clean and simple design! The pink butterfly really "pops" against the kraft background. The coloring effect is also so fun on the butterfly, showing off the details of this great image. The white outline does a nice job of spotlighting the center panel. Who wouldn't love receiving this birthday card?!!
Here is my take. I was especially inspired by Jennifer's bright pink butterfly and neutral background:
All stamps are Purple Onion Designs. The butterflies (Vintage Butterfly Set) are available HERE, the branch set (Hang in There) HERE, and the sentiment HERE. Thanks again for stopping by! And thanks, Jennifer, for playing along! :)
