And though I hardly did the inspiration justice here is my card:
I layered some diecuts (a technique learned in class) from the Cricut cart Storybook as I thought their shape was kind of similar to the flowers in the runner. I embossed the Hero Arts sentiment in black to give more texture to the card. Still thought it needed SOMEthing so I added some Doodlecharms baker's twine and Michael's black pearls to die cut circles for the flower centers.
NOT my favorite card. If I were the teacher I'd give it a "C". No where to go but up I suppose! LOL!
