Linda *Days 4, 5, and 6*

Hi everyone! Happy Christmas Eve day! :) I hope you all are celebrating with family and loved ones! Today will be our last day of inspiration with Linda. Thanks so much for stopping by and thanks again, Linda, for allowing me to share your fabulous cards!! I hope you all continue to stop by Linda's blog and photostream for inspiration-- I know I will be!

Because of the holidays, I have a triple dose of Linda's creativity today! Here is her first inspiration card:

I just love Linda's mix of patterned paper and stamping--this is so challenging for me! Linda's sentiment is perfect for this fall card. I love the little punched or cut-out leaves. They are such a great touch! Finally, I think the overall design of this card is quite appealing--a great starting off point for a card.

Here is my take:
Here is the next inspiration card by Linda:

Isn't this a beauty! That sky is just too good!! The bright pink flowers are so cheery. And nothing is more fun than ric-rac-- an embellishment I need to set out on my craft table so I remember to add it to more cards! I also really love the blue butterfly which adds a great texture as it is the same blue as the sky.
Here is my take:

And finally, here is our last card by Linda, aka Oz, AND aka The Background Queen:

Isn't that background simply gorgeous!? I love the mix of text and light butterflies. I can't get enough! The elegant sentiment adds to the design! The lacey embellishment under the sentiment is the perfect femine detail for this dainty card!
Here's my take:

Thanks again Linda for all of the inspiration! Merry Christmas everyone!
