{inspired by virginia}

I was inspired by the very talented and unbelievably sweet Virgina, who in turn was inspired by the very talented Alexandra.  This wonderful sketch by Alexandra started the whole thing.


Alexandra made this beautiful card:

and Virgina made this fabulous card:

and here is the card I made:

I put my own little spin on the sketch with the different shapes, but its all there.  :)  I just realized that these cards are from 3 countries, I am in the US, Virginia is in Canada and Alexandra is in France!  How cool is that?

What about you?  Are you inspired?  If you are and happen to make a card, please leave me a comment so I can visit your blog!  Would love to see what all my talented friends come up with.

Happy Sunday!
