Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge #24
For this week's challenge I have for you a headboard and pillow collection found on Pier 1's web site. I just loved the spring colors.
For my card, since it was the colors that led me to choose this picture, that's where I started. I knew I wanted pumpkin pie, certainly celery and soft suede. I tried a few different colors for a blue/green shade and ended up picking baja breeze - that gave me the softness I was looking for. Oh how I would love this color to be brought back... I would be so, so happy!
To start I made the background with a soft suede panel and the Perfect Details texture plate. I thought the pattern mirrored the design of the headboard. To slightly emphasize the texture, I rubbed just a bit of soft suede ink over the whole panel. On top of this background I wanted some fun flowers and chose Best Wishes & More. The flowers were stamped in both pumpkin pie and baja breeze, and then I punched out the baja breeze centers with a 1/2" circle punch and mounted them on the orange flowers with dimensionals. The certainly celery leaves are from the same set - I adhered them to the backs of the flowers, then after I added the baja breeze ribbon, I put all of the images up on dimensionals. To finish off I adhered three tiny buttons in the corners and added a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes.
