Inspired by Vicky from Lily Pad Cards

The guys at Lawnscaping Challenges have a great one this time - Inspired by...!
My card making has changed a little - it's still mostly CAS but I'm doing more pop ups with paper piecing because I'm so inspired by Vicky from Lily Pad Cards and her great how-to videos.
Here's Lily Pad Cards' site: http://www.lilypad.inlinkz.com/
Vicky's Blog: http://www.clips-n-cuts.com/
Vicky's Youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/vickypgr

Here's my card:

I've also started to use Ranger's Glossy Accents which she introduced me to (as seen on the rainbow). I love the way she uses Distress Inks to shade her areas of the stamp before cutting out (done here on the clouds before covered with Stickles) and the shading of the edges and / or of the whole panel.
I loved this ribbon I found and it pares great with the rainbow.

And as it's fitting, I'm adding this to the Lily Pad Virginia's View inspiration photo challenge too!!


So here's to Vicky!!
