I was inspired by.. Carole showcasing the new Hydrangea stamp from Hero Arts

I've noticed that I tend to post an 'inspired by' card on Sundays... This card was inspired by Carole who has a blog 'Ish' which can be found here, and this card which is linked from her flickr gallery is the card that inspired me.


I love her outrageous vintage style - how she tears and distresses and gives her card a gorgeous tatty old look. I just can't get myself to do that!

Have a lovely Sunday.
