Joy's First Challenge!

Happy Saturday everyone!


My good friend, Joy, is having her first challenge! All you have to do is find someone who inspires you and honor them by making a card/project. All the details can be found on Joy's blog here, and be sure to scroll down far enough to find the challenge rules.

I've decided to make a card for this challenge by honoring one of our fabulous Hero Arts hostesses, Heather! On the Hero Arts blog this past week, Heather shared her beautiful gift wrapped packages. I've always loved Heather's work, especially when she uses vellum! So I've made a card using the Blossom Art set by Hero Arts and stamping, then white embossing, one of the flowers on vellum.


I used three different layers for the flower. The sentiment is a clear one, also from Hero Arts, and I curved it on my acrylic block so it would align with the curve of my scalloped, circle card base.

Thank you, Heather, for you amazing talent, beautiful work and wonderful inspiration!

Come and join the fun by playing along in Joy's challenge! I know you can all think of at least one person that inspires you!

Thanks for stopping by today! Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! :)
