Inspired by...Purple Onion Designers

Happy Saturday, my friends! I am thrilled to announce today's inspirational POD designer is Darien!! If you haven't been to Darien's BLOG, make sure to head there ASAP. Her creations are truly a treat for the eyes, loaded with shabby chic style and incredible details. With that said, feast your eyes on this layout by Darien:Where do I begin? This is one of the most beautiful LO's I've ever seen! I love the soft pink colors and gorgeous flowers. The layered music paper is an elegant touch. The banners are a fabulous way to create a title. And finally, those little vintage butterflies make the perfect embellishment.
Here is my take:
For my card I used the following stamps by POD:
Vintage Butterfly
Early 1900's Music Background
Doodle Flower Sentiment Set
Thanks again for visiting and leaving such kind comments. I know I've said this before, but I can't tell you how much they mean to me! AND BIG thanks to Darien for allowing me to share her work!! :)
