My friend Maria takes beautiful photographs. One of those beautiful pictures was the inspiration for this card above made for Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge. Maria and I got together recently to talk about using her pictures as the focal point of cards. I made a quick sample for her which I have posted below. The photo is from her trip to Italy. I love the sepia tone of it! I trimmed her picture and just added some ribbon and a sentiment to create the bottom card. So simple - yet so pretty! Last I heard Maria was making friends with a brand new paper cutter, cardstock and ribbon and was going to introduce them to some gorgeous photos........can't wait to see her results!
