Linda Inspired

Wow posting 3 days in a row, that doesn't happen all the time :)
Well today is the 15th of the month and I have another Inspired card for you.  I am not sure how long I have been following Linda, but she inspires me with her great coloring and such neat designs of her cards.  Here is a Link to her Blog and the card that inspired the one I made for today.

Instead of a tag I used a folder tab and painted it with 2 coats of distress paints, with a little distress inks around the edge.

7 gypsies-- Naked tabs
Basic Grey-- Two scoops papers
Tim Holtz Vintage Shabby papers for big flower
Stampendous -- Birthday assortment stamp
Spellbinders -- Rose Creations die, flower and leaves shaped with stylus
McGill - branch punch
EK Success -- flower and small circle punches
Stickles-- Worn Lipstick (small flower centers)

My cat Anna will not leave me alone, I guess she feels like she deserves some one on one time with me :) 
Hope you all are safe and well, there has been some really crazy weather all over.
Don't forget to drop by Linda's blog,

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by,

Oh, my gosh, so pretty with the flower/paper/color combo! I love how you added the brown twiggy branches. I never think to do them in brown. Got to remember that!

Lovely creation dear Connie. Love the soft colors you've used. The flower is so pretty and perfect for the card ;)

Okay, Connie, you have put me to shame. I have this die set and never used it!! Your card is out of this world!! How beautiful and the whole card sings celebrate. How feminine!! Say hi to Anna! and just shoveled my snow/icy sidewalk! It's melting but not fast enough for me!!

Me, My Stamps and I said...

Oh my I am so flattered you chose one of my cards and your kind compliment! Love the changes you made to this CASE! The folder tag works great and that 3d flower is absolutely gorgeous along w/the smaller flowers and twigs! Great job! (Hope you have time to participate in this week's ODBD to CASE someone's card.)

Blessings, my friend!
