Vanessa *Day 5*

Here is our final inspiration card by the talented Vanessa:

This card is another example of Vanessa's perfectly elegant style! I love the rich green background with the bold fern. Using both the twine and ribbon adds an unexpected, creative twist to this card's embellishments. Finally, the color palette is so natural and appealing!


Here is my take. I was especially inspired by Vanessa's beautiful embossing and ribbon and twine embellishments. AND big thanks to Sue for my new stamp! :)

Thanks again to all of you who stop by and leave such wonderful, sweet comments. And BIG thanks to Vanessa for allowing me to share your work this week. Be sure to add Vanessa's BLOG and PHOTOSTREAM to your favs- I know you will want to check her work out all the time! And remember- I'll see you tomorrow with inspiration from one of my fellow Purple Onion Designers! :) HUGS!
