Karen's Inspiration - Day 5

Hi everyone-- ready for another fabulous card by Karen? Here you go:

I think it is impossible to look at Karen's cards and not feel cheery! This card is no exception. I love the bright colors and fun flowers. The little owl and birds are the perfect touch of whimsy. Finally, isn't that the coolest tree?? Love the punched circle--so unique!

Here is my card-- I was especially inspired by Karen's color combo--purple/pink, orange, and green. I created the background using this cool technique from Jennifer McGuire.

Thanks for visiting--make sure you come back tomorrow for our last day with Karen!

Stamps: Text (Inkadinkado), Plaid (Great Impressions), Text (Papertrey Ink.)

Ink: Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Versamark, Stampin' Up Black Ink

Other: Misc. Cardstock, Thread, Buttons and Gems, Fiskar's Butterfly Punch, JoAnn's Craft Essentials Clear Embossing Powder
