Lawnscaping Challenge: Inspired By

I'm excited to share the card I made for the most recent Lawnscaping Challenge! The challenge was "Inspired By."  It was sooo easy for me to pick a fellow crafter that inspires me! I am constantly inspired by Heather Nichols, so I had to pick one of her cards!!! She is awesome and we share a love of using Kraft stock! :-)

Here is Heather's card that I chose:

I love her use of Kraft with white ink and how there is a spine on the card like a book! So, here is my take:

I chose to use Kraft along with white ink, too, plus a single little critter with a simple sentiment as the main focus of the card.  I also used a soft ink in the background of the owl and I stitched in similar spots with my sewing machine.  I kept the color of the main image similar to the base of the card.  I really love the way this card came out and I'm inspired to try a few more using other crafter's ideas as inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to play along with the Lawnscaping Challenge!!!
