Just Us Girls Challenge #147

 
As you may know, I love photo inspiration! The challenge over Just Us Girls has my interest peaked again! My card today has a bit more colors (again, alcohol ink) and layers (diecut/stamp).
 WITH LOVE
I had some serious fun playing with the new Lattice Background 
from Hero Arts. Part of the background was colored in green with Marvey Markers and the oval edges were distressed with Distress Ink. 
 A few days ago, I was at the book store and saw this.... (the book store didn't stop me from taking photos), so here it is!
Let's do both and that will make two good deeds a day

Your take on the inspiration photo is so perfect, Virginia! I love the mix of stamps you used! I knew, as soon as you got your hands on that lattice stamp, you'd be doing something beautiful with it! :)
