For Your Inspiration #26

Hello everyone!  I'm finally back with a card.  It's been too long.

We have a new inspiration photo for you at For Your Inspiration.  It's just gorgeous!  I hope you'll join us for this challenge.  Here's the photo:
Here's my take on it:


I went a pretty literal route with this.  I tried to be "artsy" by double stamping the branches of the tree after stamping off once.  It's not my favorite look:)

Please be sure to visit the rest of the FYI Design Team to see their beautiful cards inspired by this photo.  Links are on my sidebar.

This is really artsy and pretty. I like that double stamping technique, and how you made the grass and fence in the foreground.

hi Sara,
My first time commenting on your blog although I've enjoyed it for awhile. Anyway, just thought I let you know, the "artistic" tree is my favorite part of your card.

Just gorgeous Sara! I don't know what you're talking about…I love that double-stamped look. Gives the image lots of depth... it almost has an Asian feel to it. Great job on the inspiration photo!
