A Warm, Happy, Cheerful hello!

Hi everyone! Well, it's the weekend! It is so nice here in TN this weekend. WE have the windows open and the smell of fresh cut grass, sausage, and money in my pocket for shopping is in the air...LOL! I am just waiting on College GameDay to go off and then we are off to Hollister and Banana Republic - the favorite stores of Ava and I, respectively. I love shopping...

Ok, so anyway, back to today's card. I am participating in the weekly challenges over in the Verve forum on Splitcoaststampers and this week's challenge was to get our inspiration from the Anthropologie website. I decided on this cool graphic pillow:

Isn't that SO cool!? I think I might have to buy that! They have some really cool doorknobs,too!  So, we also had a sketch to follow:

And here is what I came up with to show:

Cute, no?  For some reason the Crushed Curry paper and ink shows up more gold than it really is, but it's very close to the pillow color. :)

Well, I hope you guys have a wonderful day! See you tomorrow! Oh, and did you ribbon! lol

Keva: That color thing happens from time to time, but nevertheless, your interpretation was on target.

This is a fantastic design. I love how the squares are offset from one another, gives the card a lot of character and the curry color is yummy!

Keva I think you nailed the inspiration piece. The colors are perfect and the angles in the lighter paper really remind me of that pillow.
