I hope the ladies in question take it as a compliment that I've cased their cards. The stamps, inks and card used aren't the same but the result sort of looks the same.
Here and here. Many, many thanks for your inspiration, it helped me out immensely. I did use the same colours because that is what appealed to me as well as the layout and techniques used.
The Lovely as a Tree set from Stampin' Up is just beautiful. I loved using the kraft card from Stampin' Up too.
