Inspired by .....

....Jennifer McGuire!   When I saw that the new challenge at A Blog Named Hero is to make a card inspired by a Hero Arts Artist, there was no doubt in my mind that I'd be making a card inspired by Jennifer McGuire.  (That's not to say that I won't also make cards inspired by Shari Carroll, Tami Hartley, Kelly Rasmussen or Lisa Spangler - all artists I admire greatly).  I find Jennifer's work beautiful, inspirational and classy, and she is just so generous with the papecrafting community - she's just fabulous!

I didn't actually go to Jennifer's blog and choose a particular card to CASE, I just got out a bunch of HA supplies that I know Jennifer has used and loves, and tried my best.  I know she has mentioned how much she likes the Flower Dot Pattern background stamp from HA and Basic Grey, I know she loves distress inks, and I know she ADORES Perfect Pearls.  So, starting with those three things (and adding a finishing touch of scattered black pearls), I came up with this:

Thanks for visiting - have a great day :)
