Shari *Day 5*

As I typed "Day 5" as the header for this post, I must say I was quite bummed to see the week of inspiration with Shari coming to an end. :( BUT on the bright side, we can continue to enjoy Shari's lovely creations on the Hero Arts blog and website and on Shari's personal blog.
Here's our last inspiration card by Shari: Incredible, fun, cute...I could go on and on describing this card by Shari! This bright little cityscape just makes me smile. I think we should start painting our towns like this in real life! Okay, back to the card. :) I really like the way Shari has added dimension to this stamp by "popping up" several of the buildings. And, like always, Shari hasn't forgotten the finishing touches, including the subtle flourish stamped in the background and the string embellishment!

Shari's fun coloring really inspired me to try a new color scheme on this Artist's Butterfly by Hero Arts:
BIG, HUGE thanks to Shari for allowing me to share her work on my blog this week! And thanks, as well, for the inspiration you provide to all of us in the Hero Arts fan club!! :)
