H2H Photo Inspiration Challenge 2-26-12

This week's H2H challenge is to find inspiration from the lovely room above and go with it! Though I'm somewhat drawn to that particular room, given that it is clearly loaded with style, I found it a bit challenging to figure out how to let it inspire me. In the end, I went with the colors and the overall feel as a guide. I was also trying to add in this week's Mojo Monday sketch so I could post my card there as well. Here's that sketch:

And here is my card. I went through all my Close To My Heart stamp sets looking for one I haven't used and one that would go with the feel I wanted to portray on this card, given the inspiration photo. I found Enjoy Life and had fun using it for the first time.


Supply list:

Cardstock: White Daisy, Desert Sand (CTMH); Natural White (SU)
Patterned Paper: from the following paper packets -->> Notebook, You & Me, Wings (CTMH)
Stamp Set(s): Enjoy Life, Make It Count (CTMH)
Ink/Colorants: Desert Sand, Star Spangled Blue, Crystal Blue, Heavenly Blue, Bamboo, New England Ivy (CTMH)
Tools: Lacy Scallops border punch (SU); Standard Circle dies (Spellbinders)


  1. Great job mixing your papers from those distinctly different packs for this challenge! I love the stamp sets you used too. The one used in the corners is one of my favorites. Thanks for playing along at H2H!

  2. What a beautiful mix of papers and I love all of the stamping! Truly a work of art! thanks for playing at Heart to Heart! :)

  3. The room isn't the only one that is loaded with style - your card is, too. A very nice interpretation!
    Thanks for playing H2H!

  4. Love all of the details on your card. Thanks for sharing with us at H2H!
