Nichol *Day 3*

Here's another beauty by Nichol:One word comes to mind when I look at this card- BREATHTAKING! This is a work of art! I love the color scheme- the olive greens and pinks look so striking together. The layers of floral images and text give this a touch of vintage appeal. Nichol's distressing is also wonderful, creating the perfect pink border around her center die cut shape.
Here's my take: Thanks again for all of your visits and sweet, sweet comments!! See you tomorrow! HUGS!
Stamps: Hero Arts (K5344, CL389, CL428), Bird (Martha Stewart)

I really enjoy your blog, and how you show two cards each day and your ideas taken from their inspiration. I think Nichol's card today will probably be my vote for "Card of the year", and I would love to have it as a picture on my wall. I'm not familiar with your stamp--your card is really great, and I love its design and color.
