Shari *Day 2*

First of all, thanks ssssssoooooooooooo much for all of your truly wonderful comments yesterday for my Hero Arts blog day with Jennifer McGuire. You are all the absolute best and your support continues to overwhelm me. Your kindness is simply amazing and means so much to me.

Here is our next inspiration card by Shari: This card is such a cutie! And boy does it show off Shari's coloring skills. The shadows and highlights on her stamped images are terrific. And have you ever noticed that Shari has such a knack for choosing interesting color schemes? All of her color choices have that special *something* that makes her cards stand apart. I love the grey and brown tones on this card. Finally, this card design is extra fun and lends itself to being used with many different stamp sets. The kraft panel that extends to the top of the card is the perfect little "home" for many different images.
Here is my take:

Please know that while I haven't had hardly any time to comment on your blogs, that I am still visiting you and enjoying all of your creations, my friends! Thanks for continuing to visit me! HUGS!

Beautiful take on Shari's card! Love the partial stamping of the butterflies and your yummy distressing!

Your card has elements that are more unexpected - and I love it! Plus I really love your color choices. Usually I'm not a fan of yellow (or pink, for that matter) but this manages to look sophisticated!
