Sketch #126

My inspiration for the colours I used on my card was last week I was looking out of our kitchen window when I was making breakfast I  looked over to our pond and our bridge and at this time of year is covered in the most beautiful Wisteria in full bloom.  I do wish it was like this all year round.
Well if it was I would take it from granted and wouldn't appreciate it as much.

Aren't all of these colours magical together?
One of my view's from my kitchen window.
I've used a photo of the Wisteria for my Blog Tile as I thought it looked so pretty.

Oh Kathie, what I would give right now to be in the middle of that Wisteria. Your picture is absolutely gorgeous. When I say the banner, I knew that had to be in your yard. What a wonderful view to look at every day. It sure give you a sence of peace and warmth. I love it. You know how I feel about lavander. Your card is stunning. The added jewels and bow are so perfect. I love the embossing folder you have used too. Such a wonderful feel good card.

Hi Kathie!
Your card and your yard just simply take my breath away! You must feel you're living in a fairy land to see that natural beauty every day. I thought it was a stock photo until I read your blog - oh my goodness, I just can't get over how gorgeous that is.

And gorgeous describes your card too. It really is stunning the way you've colored it, the beautiful papers and colors you've chosen and the fabulous rhinestone embellishments too. It is truly breath-taking.
Sharon :)
