Another "Inspired By" Card

This card didn't photograph as well as I'd hoped but I'm going to share it anyway. It's another card inspired by Jay over at Indigo Inklings. Click here to see the card that inspired me.
This is a monochromatic design using SU so saffron cardsock. The four embossed panels are embossed with the new cuttlebug embossing folder called Moroccan screen.
The sentiment is from the SU set called It's Your Birthday. The white flowers are Brides flowers that I overstamped with so saffron ink with a swirly image. The flower centers are homemade dew drops. Click here to see how they are made.

Thanks for all of the inspiration you've given me Jay! You helped coax my mojo back this week!

Edited to add: The sentiment in these photos looks smeared for some reason, doesn't it? I can't figure that out. In real life it's not smeared. It's pigment ink embossed with clear embossing powder. Hmmm.... odd.

Hey... love your card! The sentiment looks smeared because with that close up of a shot, your camera focused on the closest thing which was the bump of the center of the flower - which is in perfect focus. That made the sentiment just ever so slightly out of focus ... but with that close a shot, just a quarter of an inch further away makes a difference. You can get a better shot from slightly further away and then crop it down on your computer.
Hope this helps
