Inspired by...Kelly Rasmussen

Hello, my stamping friends! Did you all have a nice weekend? I had a great one! :) I got to teach one of my new classes with some fun ladies at my local scrapbook store, Mementos, AND I also got to take a class from my creative friend, Peggy. :)

And now that it's Monday, it is my pleasure to announce that this week's featured artist is the over-the-top talented Kelly Rasmussen! I was first introduced to Kelly's work through the Hero Arts blog and I've been in love with her modern and clean designs ever since! Kelly's work is truly amazing and I know you'll want to spend hours checking out her BLOG and PHOTOSTREAM! Here is our first inspiration card by Kelly: So striking! First of all, I love the boldness of the pink and green against the dark black background. The touches of white, like the border around the green panel, the sentiment, and the ribbon really pull this design together. I also LOVE the way Kelly has layered the stamping of her floral images- just beautiful!!
Here is my take: Thanks for visiting! See you tomorrow with another beyond gorgeous card by Kelly!

These are fantastic colors! I love the way you make them work - I know they're distress inks, but can you tell me which colors you used? Especially for your green background. I just *love* your interpretation!
