You Inspire Me

Happy Tuesday! Today's card features the current color challenge at The Play Date Cafe. I haven't played along with those girls in ages--& I miss it--so when I saw this week's fun colors, I knew I had to play along.
This card is my homage to my crafty friend, Susan (aka LateBlossom). You probably know her as one of the reigning queens of CAS. The simplicity & beauty of her creations often amaze me. She really does inspire me to wow others in the same way.

I am loving the way this one turned out...with the white on white & just a pop of color on the single butterfly & sentiment. Hope you like it, too!

Stamps: Perfect Words (SU)
Paper: Raspberry Fizz, Only Orange, PTI white
Ink: Raspberry Fizz
Accessories: Martha Stewart butterfly punches, Kaisercraft pearl
