Inspired by...Els, aka Be(e)!

Hi everyone! Hope you had a nice weekend. :) I am very excited to announce that the next featured stamper this week is.... Els, best known as Be(e) on FLICKR and her BLOG. I have admired her cards for quite some time and can't wait to share a few this week. Let's get started; shall we? :) Here is our first inspirational card:The design of this card is so crisp and clean. I love the unique color scheme. Els did a beautiful job distressing the main panel. Isn't that folded corner a great touch?! The subtle text stamping on white adds to the vintage feeling of this card. Finally, that scrumptious ribbon makes the perfect embellishment!
Here is my take: Thanks so much for stopping by and for leaving such kind comments! :) See you tomorrow, my friends, with another beautiful card by Els. Hugs!
Stamps: Hero Arts (CG152, CG125), Sentiment (Papertrey Ink)

Jill I love how you do these samples and then do your take! Wow is my respose to anything that you do. Your work is beyond anything I have ever seen and so inspiring. I have yet to add you to a "My Inspiration List" on my blog. Just gave it a new face lift and so need to share about who you are and what you do! Do you work for HA because you have so many of their stamps! Sorry shouldn't ask that hey! I think I would have more if I knew where to get them here in Canada besides ordering on-line. Michaels doesn't have a very good selection and they are always 25 to 30 bucks. The more I see you create the more I want. Sorry to go on and on! Love your sweet spirit and your fantastic work. Hugs.
