Inspired by...Sharon D.

I'm so thrilled to share the work of the talented and very sweet Sharon D. this week.  You can check out lots of her awesome cards by visiting her flickr photostream HERE.  Here's today's inspiration card by Sharon:
I just adore these soft colors and the overall design of Sharon's card.  The dimension she's given to her flowers is FAB as is the touch of lace beneath her sentiment.
Here's my take:
The bird, Penny Black 4157K Nature's Day, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto Tiara White Cardstock (my favorite cardstock for colored pencils) was colored using Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Art Grip Colored Pencils.  Next, I cut out the bird image and mounted onto white cardstock inked very lightly with Old Paper Distress Ink.  The script background, Penny Black 1999L Letter Background, was stamped using Old Paper Distress Ink.  Sentiment by Penny Black, 30-024 Enjoy, and blue and yellow cardstock by Penny Black (Mix and Match Cardstock).

Oh- and if you stop by the Faber Castell blog after 9:15 EST, you can check out a photo tutorial on how I colored the bird image.  Click HERE to check it out.
Now for a look at what's happening on the Mementos blog today:
