FRESH INSPIRATION FRIDAY

Hero Arts provided a photo as inspiration to make a card, just for fun:


Here is the card I made:



The background of this card is actually a two-toned brown patterned paper, which does not show up so well in the photo!  I love the ruffled flowers (Hero Arts CG291), which remind me of the soft curves of the sofa's frame.  They are white embossed with Hero Arts pearls for centers.  The sentiment is Hero Arts CL497. The brown layer was  mounted on a white card, which was distressed around the edges with walnut stain distress ink.

Thanks for visiting!

Those flowers are my current faves! Love them alone or stacked! Your take on the challenge is darling, Joy! And to answer your question about the white pen I used for my faux stitching, it's just a Gelly Roll, brand new from Michael's, so it was nice and juicy!
