Flowers and Wicker

I am playing again this week in the {Pin}spiration challenge. The photo we were given for our inspiration this week is:

Isn't this such a pretty, feminine looking bedroom? Anyway, after looking closely at the photo, I decided to use the colours, the white wicker and the flowers for my card. Using Hubby's stamp collecting magnifying glass, I determined the flowers on the bedspread are an aster/daisy looking flower, so I found a stamp among my hoard that I thought looked similar. I stamped the image onto Cryogen card with Momento Black Tuxedo ink.

Here is the card I came up with:

I colored the image using my Copic markers (yes, I kept the list of colours I used; no, I cannot find the list -- but I promise I'll add the colors as soon as I clean up in my craft room a little bit -- grin).

I started with a white card base and added a layer of of DCWV card which I embossed first. I thought this embossing folder (Geometric Rings by Cuttlebug) looked similar to the wicker in the canopy of the bed. I cut the flower image out using Spellbinder Labels 14. I cut a piece of darker orange card using the next size die from the set.

Lastly, I added three gold baubles to the top left of the card, white ribbon (edge with gold), and a sentiment.

I plan to enter this in:


  1. This card is gorgeous, Jenee!!! Beautiful image and papers!
    Embossing is my fave technique and I now I see another folder that I "need"!! :)

  2. WOW! SO pretty. Love the way you used the flowers from the inspiration photo. Such a lovely card and am so glad to see you use that embossing folder - I just purchased the same one this past week and can't wait to use it on something now. Lovely card and thanks for joining us at {Pin}spirational Challenges.
