Inspired by...Julie! (POD)

Today's inspirational Purple Onion Designer is none other than the talented Julie Dudley. Julie makes the most beautiful cards and scrapbook pages. You can see more of her awesome work on her BLOG. Here is Julie's inspiration card: This card is just so soft and sweet! The peach color of the flowers is so appealing. And I love the way Julie has used the spring sentiment stamp to create the stems of the flowers. Finally, the embossed backround adds the perfect amount of texture!
Here is my take: Once again I just can't get enough of THIS Purple Onion set (Stems and Grass). The butterfly is from the POD Vintage Butterfly set, and the sentiment is from Doodle Flower Sentiment, available HERE.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks, Julie, for the fabulous inspiration!! :)

Beautiful inspiration and your card is so, too! Love the central panel that is higher than the actual card!

I really like how you have the panel bigger than the card! The eyelet wholes with the twine is the perfect touch!
