Short on time this morning, I'll edit the fields later but almost all the info is below.
I'm the hostess over at the CCEE Stampers this month - and today I've set an inspiration challenge with a difference. Instead of using a picture, I chose a poem with some marvellous visual imagery. I did say that if the rest of the team thought it was a stinker of a challenge I'd change it, but they really came up trumps and I had great fun creating this card. Check out the blog link above to see the poem and to share your own Ars Poetica inspired card.
Be back later...
