Els *Day 5*

Here is our last beautiful and inspiring card by Els: I just can't get enough of this card! I love the deep rich color of the flowers against the lightly distressed and stamped background. The stitching provides awesome texture and the perfect border. Finally, one of my favorite things about this card is how Els has attached the sentiment and the touch of ribbon in the top right corner.
Here is my take:
Thanks so much for visitng this week. All of your comments mean the world to me! And extra thanks to Els (aka Be(e)) for allowing me to share your work! Here's one more link to Els' BLOG and PHOTOSTREAM as I'm sure you'll all be stopping by often for more inspiration!
See you tomorrow for "Inspired by...Purple Onion Designers!" Who could it be? :)
Stamps: Postgram and Ticket (Purple Onion Designs), Flower (Penny Black), Hero Arts (CL320, K5344)
