Simple Inspiration

I had a lot of required stamping to work on today, but finally, this evening, I did a simple one for the Inspiration Challenge. The inspiration site was a wonderfully fun, wild, wacky gift store with lots of stylized and whimsical items. Many of them had a comic Oriental flair, similar to the Kokeshi dolls from Japan. That made me think of this fabulous Hero Arts set that Francie G. had gifted me a while back. It hasn't seen ink for a while, so I was happy to pull it out and make this simple card.

Hope you are having a great weekend. The hurricane is heading up here, but is way off shore, so except for high surf at the beaches, we should be fine.

Super card! Great colors and super neat corners. I little hard to tell if you used a stamp with black ink or a corner punch. What ever tool you used, it's fantastic.
Big congrats on FS! I have long admired your work & you have been so generous with your comments. Enjoy your day!

I noticed this card on the IC forum and thought it was so cute, Joanne. I love the corner stamp or punch -- not sure which.

Sorry the Bill is headed your way. We lucked out this time down here in Florida!
