This was the inspiration piece I chose for last week's Inspiration and Themes Challenge at In Love With Stamping:
I love the fresh and clean lines and colours of this bed linen from John Lewis - no wonder my eye was drawn to it - it's my favourite mix of aqua, neutrals and yellow.... in fact it's a pretty good match for the colours I chose for my blog design isn't it!
Here is the card I made based on the picture - the colours I chose were Sahara Sand, Whisper White, So Saffron, Close to Cocoa and Sage Shadow.
I used my brand spankin new Swiss Cheese fiskars punch for the bottom Close to Cocoa layer - fun isn't it! The Sage Shadow layer was stamped with the same colour ink with the Sanded background stamp and used Stampin Up markers to colour the sentiment. I really like this card (am I allowed to say that lol!)
