Inspiration Challenge - Lily Pad Blog Challenge

This week the challenge at Lily Pad Cards. is all about inspiration. Our challenge is to look through all the fabulous cards people have shared on the blog and pick one that inspires us.

I picked Lisa's fabulous Freedom card as my inspiration.  I loved the design and the images and she makes the most wonderful patriotic cards.

Here is the card with the front closed:
 and here is the easel open:

I love this LilyBee paper and it worked with the patriotic theme. I used the Hero Arts Vintage ladies as my focal image and some fun banner stamps to share my message. 

All the details of the challenge are at the Lily Pad Blog. Our wonderful sponsor is Simon Says Stamp!

Design Team: Alice Wertz, Deborah Nolan, Lin Brandyberry, Nancy Krueger, Sherri Thompson, Vicki Papaioannou
