It's all about the bedding!

This weekend inspiration came from Pottery Barn bedding, and now here's a card I stamped based on this photo I found in a Linens and Things flyer. I think this bedding is just yummy, with the combination of very vanilla, always artichoke and groovy guava, so of course I had to stamp a card. Too late into the process I got hit with a strong sense of deja vieu and I realized that I've become a one-trick pony. Not only did I revert to my current favorite layout, but I even used the same stamp and color combination I had used previously for this card. Oh well, no matter. The card is just barely different enough not to be a complete CASE of myself -- LOL!

So here it is. I used the Leaves a la carte jumbo wheel inked up in always artichoke for the background. I added some groovy guava prints double sided designer paper. For my main image I chose the flowers from year after year stamped on very vanilla card stock in always artichoke and colored with blender pen and groovy guava and mellow moss inks. I double matted the main image with groovy guava and always artichoke, then added it to a large mat with a bit of groovy guava double stitched ribbon and the sentiment from all holidays.
So no, it's not particularly original, but I still like it. Hope you do as well.
