For your Inspiration challenge and SSS

Before I show you my latest card, I want to welcome 


to my blog. She is my latest member - HELLO and WELCOME to you! She has a beautiful blog and is  very creative! Head on over, if you have time - its a worthwhile visit!

And here is your welcome photo:


Its a Magnolia from my garden - its blooming right now. I hope you like it!

Such a gorgeous inspiration picture is featured on the For your Inspiration challenge this week!



I went very close with my card to the picture. I masked a strip and sponged it with distress inks, stamped the  silhouette over it and adhered grey card stock above and below the masked strip.



I will also participate with this card in the Simon Says...Travel/Cityscapes challenge.

Materials: Hero Arts International Skyline H5470, Recollections stamps


Enjoy the rest of your Sunday and thanks for all your lovely comments!
