Blog Challenge #85 -- Inspired by.....

this pretty bedroom ensemble...so lovely and elegant. But it is still tailored....no frills, lace, bows, etc. However, check out the pattern on the fabric....is it not just fabulous?!! Um....looks so warm and cozy....perfect for cuddling in on these cold winter days that just don't seem to want to go away!

Anyway, that's the inspiration, and this 2nd photo is the card I came up with. What do you think? Remind you of that fabulous bed spread? (OK...maybe, kinda!) I finally opened and actually USED the Tulipe die that came with my Big Shot Kit. Now that I've used it, I'm kind of wondering why I haven't used it before.....it's just so luscious!! (Can't you see wedding invitations with this?!!) Well, not sure about you, but I've fallen in love with my "new" Tulipe die!!
Just a few things of note.....can you see the Close to Cocoa CS peaking out? I used the Texturz Plate from the Backgrounds Set #1; then sanded it a bit to make the pattern a bit more noticeable. So, now onto all the info you've been waiting for:
Stamps: Thank You Kindly
Inks: Chocolate Chip
CS: Chocolate Chip, Ruby Red, Close to Cocoa
Misc: DSP*, Lots of Tags Sizzlet, Big Shot, Chocolate Satin Ribbon*
*Discontinued
Thanks for stopping by and visiting. Please take a few minutes to see what my sister bloggers have created.
