Inspired by..............


After a very very busy day at work, having dinner and a power nap of 20 minutes on the couch I am back on my feet:) The day went by very fast. It's still clouded here; almost fog-gy. And with a temperture of just 1 degree above zero.We call it "water-cold" here. No snow or slippery roads but the kind of weather that makes you crawl into your jacket, scarf and gloves ( oh my is this English; hope you know what I mean)

Coming home and seeing a wonderful husband, in a warm house and dinner waiting for me is always lovely. 

On to my card!

Both are addictive:)

I love to look around in blogland; I repinned a huge amount of cards on Pinterest because I never ever get tired to look for inspiration from other bloggers. And that's how I got the idea of my card.  

This card is inspired on a card made by Gerdine:

(photo from her blog)

I also have this stamp set from Papertrey Ink and I fell in love with the design of her card.
Instead of layered flowers I stamped right onto cardstock and used washi tape to create a border on the left side of my card. 
The card turned out as planned; it's also a wonderful way to get back to stamping. 

Here is a close up:

And here is my card:

Till soon!

Very pretty, Stella, and I thought you made 'both' cards! You did a wonderful job being inspired by that card.

I can imagine what 'water cold' feels like. Very damp, and goes right through you.
Very pretty card! Love the colors of the flowers.
