Inspired by Godelieve!

I hope you've had a good start to your week. I saw a beautiful card made by Godelieve on her blog yesterday. I was so inspired by it, I just had to try a similar design. Here is what I came up with.



When I finished the card, I thought it looked a bit like something you'd send out for a Christmas card. Hmmm....maybe I'll save it until then. If you get a chance, you should go to Godelieve's blog! The card is gorgeous, and she used the most beautiful poppy for her main image! Thank you, Godelieve, for inspiring me with your stunning card!

We are having fabulous weather here finally! They say it'll be in the mid 70's with sunshine all week!! My kind of weather!

Hope your day is a happy one! :)

Wow, beautiful card Barb! You're right, it would make a great Christmas card! Love the ferns in the background with that dogwood stamp. It's been rainy/cloudy for the last 8 days in Indy. I'm so hoping for some sunshine this week! Please send some my way. :)
