Oh my, such a fabulous clean and graphic take on my inspiration card, but then, that's what you do best! You're such an inspiration to me, the way you manage to break down other people's designs to the essentials.

Wow! Another beautiful example of flawless blending! Love the two pops of red - especially how the red center seems to draw your eye directly to 'Noel'.

Gorgeous, Ardyth ... crisp and contemporary ... love how the intensity of the blue increases as it reaches that shiny red centre ... gorgeous! Hugs, Anita :)
