There's a lovely challenge going on at the Flourishes blog called "Celebrating Home". The challenge is to make a card inspired by something in your home. You can read about it on their blog, here.
My inspiration piece is a metal embossed container that carries me through many seasons of decorating. I used a CB folder and wiped my Sahara Sand pad over the inside and then embossed a piece of Naturals White cardstock and added an image from a new SU Hostess Set, A Little Somethin'.
I love this color combo of Sahara Sand and Pirouette Pink--very calming. (I am in need of calm lately!). I inked the image in Sahara Sand, colored over the flowers with my Regal Rose markers, then "huffed" and stamped to get this pretty soft effect. A little Button Bouquet button and some taffeta & gingham ribbon finished it off. I am quite upset that SU is retiring this pink gingham ribbon; not only is it great for baby cards, but other cards, as you can see here! Pout, pout.
Thanks for visiting today, hopefully I'll have some Open House samples tomorrow!
