Some Simple Inspiration

What a lovely room, yes? The colors are so soft and breezy! This room was the inspiration for Basic Grey's challenge. I kept that photo on my desk for a few days thinking about the soft green, flowers, wonderful blue,a nd the light streaming in.

Well, this is the card I came up with:

I am hoping you will be able to see the yellow paper I used from Basic Grey's Wisteria line. It has such soft flowers on it that I thought it was the perfect match. I used Garden Green paper from CTMH, and I backgound stamped little flowers on the card base (CTMH Intrinsic Backgrounds). I chose CTMH Crystal Blue paper as an element to match the bedspread. The stickers are from Basic Grey, and the felt pieces are from CTMH. There is clear shimmery ribbon from Paper Source over the long sticker. Lots of pearls added to top things off! If you'd like to see this card better, click on it and it will bring it up full-size.
I like color challenges like this because they really let you imagination soar!
