Pottery Barn-Inspired

DSCF5451

The challenge from Pals Paper Arts this week was an inspiration challenge from Pottery Barn.  It was so gorgeous, I really was stumped---there wasn't a thing that I could do that would do it justice!  And when I made my card, it still didn't turn out the way I wanted it to in my head---oh well, I know I can put it to good use anyway!  Here's the inspiration:

Don't you wish your credenza looked like that?  Heck, I wish I HAD a credenza!  LOL!  Anyway, this card also fulfills the LSC239 "SOS" challenge at SCS today--my SOS is "sewing", "ovals" and "silhouettes"....not terribly creative, but I am a busy gal!!  So here you go:

I used the jumbo wheel Friendly Words, Pocket Silhouettes and the hostess set, Of The Earth, using Dusty Durango, Always Artichoke, More Mustard, Crushed Curry and Creamy Caramel for my colors; cardstock base is Naturals Ivory.  And since I did sewing on my card, I covered the inside with some nice DP to hide the threads:

  9. Ohhhhh, those colors are SOOOO rich and yummy!...and heck yeah, I wish I had a credenza that looked like that (or like you, had one at all, hee!). Gorgeous card!

  10. I think you did a great job! I wouldn't really want to dust all that stuff if I had a credenza to put it on - isn't a credenza kind of a desk? Why would you want to put all that stuff on it anyway! ~chris

  22. Oh LeAnne! I LOVE this card!! Your word panel that is stitched to the front is awesome behind the flowers cut out with your oval punch. I haven't see these flowers cut to ovals, and I'm glad you showed me the possibility because I LOVE it! Not sure what you had in mind for your card, but I sure do like what you came up with!!
