Inspired By Lisa Carroll - HA Challenge - 11/3-11/9

Inspired by Lisa Carroll
This is my take on Lisa's Card
Lisa's card can be seen here!
Lisa was one of the super talented gals featured on the Hero Arts Blog!

Last week's Hero Arts Challenge was to create a card inspired by one of the featured gals that had their own day on the Hero Arts Blog. I chose Lisa Carroll. I just loved her use of lavendar and black and white! So while I was in the big City of Boise, Idaho I just 'happened' to end up in Archivers and did some shopping!!!! (I also bought some grunge board which I will feature with my Distress Stickles tomorrow!)...

Card Recipe:
My goal was to turn the DesignBock Tree into a winter tree. I used Dazzling Diamonds and a white inksentials pen for my snow.

Hero Arts Stamps: Design Block Tree; Clear Designs Joys of the Season (little tree and sentiment).
Lavender scallop cs from Archivers; Black CS Bazill and SU.
White Inksentials Pen
Inks: Versamark, Black Stazon.
Dazzling Diamonds Glitter from SU.

Thanks Lisa!

Tomorrow we find out who the winners were! Boy, lots of great work to be seen!

One question though, with your long day working and kids, etc, how do you have time to play?
