Nancy - Day 6

Hi! Today is our last day of inspiration with Nancy and I know you will love her beautiful card:

The first thing that is so striking to me about this card are the colors! I love the combination of blues, browns, reds, and oranges. Nancy's beautiful arrangement of flowers and leaves creates a pretty focal point. The use of twine goes perfectly with the distressed patterned papers and is a fun way to attach the sentiment. I know we all would be thrilled to receive this birthday card!

Here is my take on Nancy's card. I am so sorry for the wonky picture--I think this is one of those cards that definitely looks much better in real life. (even if it arrives a couple of days after your birthday; right mom? *wink* *wink* oh wait, didn't we decide it was 363 days early for next year's bday?? )

Thank you, thank you, thank you to Nancy for allowing me to feature your cards on my blog. It has been a fun week! :) Thanks also to everyone who has stopped by!!

Your card photographed just fine and it is gorgeous. Again you've amped up the colors and produced a stunning birthday card, I'm sure your mom was thrilled to receive this beauty. Funny coincidence, I mailed a card yesterday that I made at a stamping class that featured that same flower stamp, I think it is from Stampendous.
Thank you, Jill, I have so enjoyed this fun week with you!

Thanks Jill for another great week! I've really enjoyed looking at Nancy's cards and your cards inspired by her.

Nancy's card has a wonderful mix of pps and I love the dimension with the flowers and leaves. Your mom must be thrilled with her birthday card. The sparkly, pieced flower looks wonderful and love all the stitching too.
