Inspired by... Maren Benedict

Happy Wednesday! Wow, time flies by! Today I am sharing a card that has nothing to do with Christmas. It`s for the Paper Crafts Connection "Inspired by" Challenge. I was inspired by Maren Benedict`s "Little Reminder Card" from the Paper Crafts July/August 2009 Eco Issue on page 70. Here is my Spring-Birthday-Card take on it:

Love these October Afternoon papers and wanted to make a card using many of them. Go and flip through your Paper Crafts mags - get inspired and create a Birthday or Thanks Card! It might be spotlighted on the PC Connection blog and you might win a free subscription!

Btw, if you are interested in getting to know boring me a bit better, there is an interview with me on this fantastic blog! I always love reading Deborah`s fun interviews and now she made me a Wednesday Wonder! I am so honoured and thrilled! Deborah is a fabulous cardmaker and already won a day on the Hero Arts blog! A cardmaker-Rockstar!

I hope your day is sunny and fun! Thanks for stopping by!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Supplies:
Cardstock: (Lemon Tart, White) Papertrey Ink, Patterned Paper: (Cherry Hill, Ducks In A Row Paperpad) October Afternoon, Die: (Cherry Hill) October Afternoon, Clear Stamp: Hero Arts, Gem: Basic Grey
