Outlines Rubber Stamps Challenge - Inspiration Picture

Hello!!!  It's Monday and time for a new Outlines Rubber Stamp design team challengeJoin the Design Team in our weekly challenges with a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate each week!  Please check out the details of how to play and win on the Outlines Blog

This week our challenge was to create a card from this inspiration picture.
Isn't this lovely?  I'd love to tell you that this is a picture from my home, but my style is a little more eclectic... a little more teenager and less elegance.  You know what I mean, right?  Anyway, I hope you'll create along with us this week!


This card was so simple to create!  I really love that the inspiration image not only gave the color palette but a little of the layout.  I stamped the Ellason Background (J-986) on light green cardstock with a white pigment ink and embossed with white embossing powder.  I embellished the card with white flowers, a white painted frame and white silk ribbon.  It's all elegance!
I'd love it if you stopped by to visit the other designers for more inspiration.  And don't forget you can join in our fun!
