Karing for Karen Blog Hop

Welcome to a special blog hop that we are calling, Karing for Karen!!  If you have been around the stamping community for any length of time at all, you might have run into Karen Knegten.  She is always participating in challenges and offering us wonderful inspiration with her amazing talent!   For those who may not have heard, about a month ago Karen had to have surgery for two brain aneurysms.  She is still in the hospital and we are having this blog to inspire more of you out there to send in some cards to Karen AND to her family that is caring for her too! So hope you feel inspired with our little hop for you today.   

Here is my card for the Knegten family...

I used various Gina K. Designs stamp sets: Nature's Greeting, Vintage Borders (for the musical score), and a sentiment from Faithful Florals.  The patterned paper is from Teresa Collins Everyday Moments and a little bling from Want2Scrap.

Here is a close up of the center panel where you can better see the musical score:

It will be awhile before I attempt such a wonderful arrangement on a card like this. My mind was a bit overwhelmed by the talent you have. Very soothing effect, though. Just inspired by the artistic element here. Laura
