Inspired by...Natalie

Welcome to another week of "Inspired by..." This week our featured artist is Natalie (luv2scrapnat on flickr)! Natalie's creations and lovely photography always catch my eye in the Hero Arts flickr gallery. Check out our first inspiration card by Natalie:
To begin with, isn't that photo beautiful? I love the outdoor background! Next, Natalie's card is so pretty and tender. I love the way she has positioned the birds on the branch. The music notes add a whimsical feeling and coordinate perfectly with the sentiment. Finally, the woodgrain background and neutral color scheme create such a charming, natural look!
Here is my take:And now if you haven't visited her blog before, HERE is a link to Natalie's blog where you can see lots more of her creations! See you tomorrow with another of Natalie's cards! HUGS!
