Inspired by...Tami!

Yep, you read that title correctly... this week our featured artist is none other than thee Tami Hartley!!! She is an over-the-top talented designer and the cherry on top is that she is SUPER sweet as well! I really am pinching myself that I get to share some of her awesome work here on my blog-o this week. Let's begin; shall we? Here's our first inspiration card by Tami:
And so you can truly appreciate the genius of her card, here's the set that she used to create that stunning bouquet: I LOVE the way Tami altered the flowers, stems, and leaves to create this fun card! She made me fall in love with this set all over again. Her bright colors are incredibly happy and look wonderful against the tan and kraft backgrounds. And speaking of backgrounds, I love how she has stamped the flowers repeatedly to make that charming background paper.Here's my take:

Thanks so much for stopping by! Be sure to check out Tami's new BLOG and PHOTOSTREAM to see more of her lovely work. And I'll be back tomorrow with another of her wonderful cards!
