I Appreciate You (Misty Garden)_inspired by Lin

Tonight, I made this one inspired by Lin's card. Lin is well known to everyone in the HA Flickr group, and she is just a lady in the news. - She creates so elegant and soft works, and has amazing skill of cutting works. she is really one of a busy stamper. I've been admiring her talent since we met.
She made a lovely card for me taking on one of my cards, and introduced mine the other day. (I was so surprised and HAPPY!).
So I made this card with my BIG THANK YOU to her by using the same two stamp she showed us in 2 works (The one is here, and the other is here.) in the past.
The Inkadinkado's bird stamp is the one I've got it at almost the same time when she opened her work to the public on the web, and I didn't use it at all at that time.
Thanks for the inspiration, Lin!!! I've been enjoying to use this combination many times since I saw your work. (I tried another background stamps - other manufacturer's included -, but I've ever found the combibation better than this.)

This is the card,
'I Appreciate You (Misty Garden Pattern)_inspired by Lin'.

*I thought about quite a while whether I opened this card to the public or not, because this one is very close to her work. But I wanted to express my appriciation to her. So I opened this one on this blog and the Flickr.

彼女は手馴れたスタンパーさんで、綺麗な作品を多数公開されている方なのですが、制作スピードもすごく速い! そして、驚く程のカットワークの技の持主です。彼女の作風やお人柄等々、いろいろな面で出会った頃から尊敬している方です。そしてまさに、只今時の人で、アチコチのWEBサイトでフィーチャーされていらっしゃいます。

This is a closeup view.
  Three flowers I put is a part of the Misty Garden Pattern. I use the Distress inks with water for almost the coloring on the stamped image, only the light dull green color is watercolor pencil.
I put the VersaMark Dazzle Chanpagne with the medium of Copic here and there.
