Addicted to Stamps and More #140

Hi there

Well, I'm back with my regular late night post which can mean just one's time for a brand new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More!  And for this week's challenge we've whooshed back around to a...

Photo Inspiration Challenge
Please take your inspiration from any element of the fab photo below
(e.g. a specific item, colours, theme, etc.)

We have two fab sponsors this week:
Bugaboo Digi Stamps - offering a prize of 7 digis!
Rosey Hearts - offering a prize of 5 digis!

Here is my DT card
I was inspired by the diamond pattern of the table, the white and putty grey colours, and the pink flowers

I stamped the stitched diamond pattern on white cardstock and cut this down before matting onto some grey/putty coloured cardstock.  I then stamped and die cut the vase and lots of elements from the Fresh Cut Florals set (first outing for this one...I love it!) and arranged these before individually adhering to the stamped panel.  The panel was adhered flat to the card base before stamping the sentiment below.

Materials used:
  • Stamps: Visible Image - unknown name; WPlus9 - Fresh Cut Florals; Clearly Besotted - Flower Arrangement (vase)
  • Dies: WPlus9 - Fresh Cut Florals; Clearly Besotted - Flower Arrangement
  • Ink: Versa Color - Chateau Gray, Peony, Petal Pink, Opera Pink, Orchid, Sage, Olive, Green Tea

I'd like to enter this card at the following challenge blogs:

My fellow teamies at ATSM have created some great cards this week, all inspired by the photo in different ways.  So, why not pop over for some inspiration, and leave some love too.
