Inspired by... Anita!

I am sooo thrilled to announce that this week's "Inspired by..." artist is one of the sweetest stampers and bloggers---Anita (AnitaRex on flickr). Anita's cards have always caught my eye and I just LOVE reading her BLOG - her posts are always full of eye candy and fun stories, too. (BTW--she has the most ADORABLE kiddos). :) So without further ado, here is our first inspiration card from Anita:
You know I can't resist a card with butterflies--and this one is pure perfection! Anita's color scheme is sooo pretty! I love the pink, aqua, and craft together. I also really love the white stamping on kraft. Such a subtle, yet eye catching look. The coloring of Anita's butterflies shows off her talent at shading. Finally, Anita's choice to add a scallop at the bottom of this card is such a wonderful finishing touch!
Here is my take: Thanks again for stopping by! See you tomorrow with another one of Anita's awesome creations!

Beautiful colors! I'm on a quest to find the best white ink to use on kraft - would either or both of you care to share your ideal?
