Be Inspired - Day 2

THIS card by Tami Hartley blew me away.  How gorgeous?????
I decided to use many of the same features in my card - I also added some distressing over embossed patterned paper - she is a GENIUS at this technique.  She HERE for a perfect example.
Supplies: Stamps and Notecard - Hero Arts; PP - Little Yellow Bicycle; Ribbon - Creative Impressions; Distress ink - Tim Holtz.
I made this card for the Dragonfly Card Drive I found out about on the Taylored Expressions blog - such a good cause, click HERE to see the details.  I don't make a lot of sympathy cards - I find them hard to make as they make me feel sad, but I was touched by this cause.
I used the tiny dragonfly from THIS adorable set... love these images (and LOVE that hummingbird... must get it out again soon.)
Check back soon for a card inspired by the fabulous Lisa Spangler. :)  And if you have the time, make an 'Inspired By' card for my challenge. Details HERE.
