Inspired by...Joy!

Hi friends! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. This week I am SUPER excited to announce that my featured stamper is Joy Taylor! Joy is such a talented stamper and she's super sweet, too. I've featured Joy on a couple of POD Saturdays which you can see HERE and HERE. But, since Joy is sooooo amazing, I couldn't resist featuring her for an entire week. :) If you haven't checked out Joy's BLOG and PHOTOSTREAM, you just must head her way! Here is our first inspiration card by Joy:
Joy is a master colorer and this beautiful purple flower is proof of this. It seems to glow and shine from within! I love the layers and dimension, too! I also love the way Joy has layered the die cut on the purple card base. Finally, the subtle Hero Arts Friend's Definition background stamp adds the perfect touch of texture to the main panel.
Here is my take: All Stamps Hero Arts: CL272, K5431, K5344, S5447
