JoJot Inspired

I was feeling quite tired earlier this evening and was going to turn in when I decided to check to see who the Featured Stamper was. Lo and behold, but it's none other than my sweet friend, JoJot!!! I instantly became alert and began surfing her magnificent gallery. Oh, if you ever need to be inspired, go to Joanne's gallery. It is full of stunning and beautiful cards! JoJo really has an eye for color combinations, texture, and layout in all of her designs. I literally spent hours pouring through the many pages of her gallery and kept coming back to her striking Nature's Silhouette's card (as I see a few others loved, too!):

Isn't her work stunning? I just love everything Jo makes.

Here are the things I changed in my card below:
1. I reversed the pink and black theme and used white embossing instead of the black silhouette
2. used buttons instead of brads
3. added a rub-on sentiment
4. did corner paper piercing only

Jo, my dear friend, I was just beyond thrilled to see you be the Featured Stamper this week! This special honor and recognition of your spectacular artwork has been soooooo very long overdue. CONGRATULATIONS and thank you so much for sharing your creativity with us; I truly am inspired by you!

It is EXCEPTIONALLY late (way in the wee early morning hours), so I am now going to bed. I know I'll sleep much better knowing I got this card done, but I have an inkling that I may just have to do another one tomorrow, if I get a chance.
