Echoes of Kindness

Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge #02
Happy Thursday to all!!!
Have you ever been to Napa Valley? It is definitely a return destination for me and my family. It was my second visit and I just love it. For today's inspiration, I made this card using the Branch Out set. I know it doesn't even come close on how I remembered the beautiful scenery in Napa but this card speaks of how easy it is to find inspiration. I sure hope you can play along.
***Leave a link to your card on Angela's blog to be entered into the random drawing for the challenge prize!***

More inspiration from The Divine Divas.
Angela (An ink and a Smile)

Paper: Kraft, Mellow Moss, Elegant Eggplant
Ink: Elegant Eggplant, Mellow Moss, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: rhinestone brad, tafetta Mellow Moss ribbon
