Inspired today... for Time Out - Home Sweet Home

I am often inspired by a very beautiful person from NSW Australia that makes very beautiful creations:  Therese Calvird.  Therese used to be a Muse designer, but sadly stepped down just as I was stepping up!  No worries... we have lots of virtual visits!  If you haven't watched one of her fantastic videos... well, please do yourself a favor - do so TODAY!
One particular visit this week to her blog LostInPaper made me try a technique she shared here.  I've given it a go, and will try again, and again - though they will never be as perfect as hers.

For Time Out's Home Sweet Home, based on this gorgeous room:
 
I present:  Flower within a flower
 
 
My base flower was cut with Mondo Magnolia, the inner flowers are Bohemian Garden, and the perfect sentiment, from Amazing Women... all from the newest Ellen Hutson's Essentials by Ellen and Julie Ebersole.  LOve this release!
 
I do hope that Therese will smile when she sees that I've attempted to make her card ... thank you, Therese for your inspiration!

Oh my...not only is this gorgeous but I must have been channeling you because I did something similar using flowers with...are you ready...a butterfly! My card's nowhere near as lovely as yours, however! I didn't realize Therese had a video...maybe I should have watched it first! Sharing soon-ish!

Therese is a creative wonder, isn't she, Michele (as you are) ... I just watched that video this morning (I'm so behind!!). I love your take ... such a wonderful colour palette ... and all that gorgeous white space ... sigh! Delighted to have you playing along with us at Time Out, my friend! Hugs, Anita :)
