Inspired by...Linda!

Hello blogfriends! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. :) I have been so anxious to introduce our next "Inspired by..." stamper.... it is......Linda W. (AKA ScrappinBari on flickr). I love the way Linda combines colors and a variety of stamps to create one-of-a-kind cards. You can see her AWESOME work on her flickr PHOTOSTREAM. I just know you'll want to check it out. Here is our first inspiration card by Linda:
This has to be one of the most clever cards EVER! Don't you love the way Linda has used the oranges to make a flower? WOW! The bright colors and green center are so cheery. I love the way Linda has layered the flower center and used a perfectly placed brad to finish it off. Finally, the big ribbon makes the perfect "leaves!"
Here is my take. I was especially inspired to make a big orange flower with bright green leaves and a green center.
Thanks for stopping by! See you tomorrow with another FAB Linda card!
Oh and I nearly forgot, sweet Linda is hosting a giveaway HERE- check out out! :)
