Inspired By Jill Foster

Joy over at Less is More
has been honoring her favourite card makers.She has also posted her first challenge!
The challenge is to make a card/project inspired by another card maker
I am inspired by so many stampers,it was difficult to narrow down to just one!
I chose this card

How gorgeous is this card? I just love it!
I love the way Jill blends the Distress Inks so beautifully. Her butterflies are out of this world too! Colours are always vibrant .
Here is my card
Its no where near as beautiful as Jill's card, but I enjoyed making it.
The over hanging 'tree' is actually a flower/stem stamp. This and the grass stamp are from Purple Onions Designs. The butterflies and sentiment stamps from Darkroom Door.

I would like to say THANK YOU to all the awesome people who left me lovely comments on my new blog. It makes my day! :)
Check out Jill's awesome will be INSPIRED!


  1. Shirley how nice of you to honour Jill, I am sure she is delighted..this is such a pretty card and I love the fact that you have used Purple Onion Designs stamps..thanks so much for playing in my first challenge..hugs

  2. A stunning card Shirley, I love the background, & the foreground too! Wonderful stamping! xx

  3. Beautiful card, and I love how you used the flower stamp to simulate a tree, too clever :)

  4. Gorgeous! I can't believe what dimension and perspective you've created merely with ink and stamps. The colours are so soft and really create a mood on this card. It's a little work of watercolour art!

  5. Hi, Shirley! This card is sooooo pretty! Love it! :-)

  6. Okay, so I am So VERY slow in finding this but what a charming surprise!!! I LOVE your card and the unique way you have used the POD stamps! That tree is so cool! Thank you so much for all of your sweet comments- I'm HONORED! BIG hugs!
