Shari *Day 3*

Here's our next inspiration card by Shari:
The first thing that caught on my eye on this card is the awesome dimension that Shari gave to the flower image. Isn't the design of this card perfect; too? I love the long, vertical layers on the bottom, especially the textured piece of red/pink paper next to the text scallop. Finally, the subtle polka dots stamped behind the flower add a charming touch to this card.

Here is my take. I used Shari's overall design/layout but switched up the colors on mine to go with the sunflowers. (And don't ask me what happened with the flower centers and glossy accents...LOL. They looked normal until I got them out in the sun for the photo. I guess I'll call it an UNhappy accident!!)

All Stamps Hero Arts (CG197, S5420)
Oh, before I forget, if you have some extra time, I have a card posted on the blog for my local scrapbook store, Mementos. Here's a peek. You can visit the Memento's blog HERE to see the entire card.
Thanks again for visiting! See you tomorrow with another fantastic card by Shari!

Great sunflower cards. I saw that stamp and was going to buy it. I think I will need to go back and get it. I have an old Hero Arts sunflower stamp and I use it all the time. Thanks for sharing.

Both cards are beautiful! I love the colour in Shari's flower, but your use of the old letter background with your sunflowers is to die for, love love love!!

Love the Crackle Accent ( that's waht it looks like to me) for the Sunflowers! Stunning and dramatic!
