Inspiring Inkin' Challenge #2

The new challenge over on Inspiring Inkin' Challenges is an inspiration one using this gorgeous Pottery Barn bedroom photograph. I just love the colours and styles of it. The added twist is to use something new or something you have never used before.

Here's my card ....

I have seen this quilted design on so many cards and it's just so pretty that I had to make one of my own. I printed off the top note template from the Stampin' Up website, drew round it on Whisper White cardstock and added 1 1/4" squares of Bashful Blue and Rose Red Patterns Designer Series Papers. I layered it onto Bashful Blue cardstock and trimmed round it by hand.

The background of the card base is stamped with the Canvas background stamp using Versamark for a subtle effect.

I then added a piece of Bashful Blue taffeta to the middle and added a greeting from the Oval All stamp set from the mini catalogue. The flowers were coloured using the Bashful Blue SU marker pen. This was then punched out with the oval punch and layered onto 2 halves of a scalloped oval punch. My scalloped oval punch was my new item - I only received mine a week or so ago and haven't used it apart from playing with it.

A quick and easy card, yet so pretty, even if I do say so myself!
