Where do you draw your inspiration?

We all draw inspiration from many places - even things we see everyday ( or at least I know I do).  Today - I was just playing around and thought - my bedspread would make a pretty card!!  So - this is how my card turned out...

And, this is what my bedspread looks like....

Like looking in a mirror, huh?!  I love these colors together.  So serene!!  I used Hawaiian Shores from PTI as my card base.  Then, I took my *very hard to find* Doilies stamp set from My Mind's Eye from the Stella and Rose Collection, and stamped various blues and greens over my card base.  Then, I took some strips of some patterned paper from the same line, and added it to the bottom of the card base.  I decided to use the sentiment "Thinking of You" from the Simon Says Stamp Exclusive set For The Record and stamped that out in Versa Fine Black Ink.  To finish off the card I added some bling with them gemstones I had in my stash.  

Thanks for stopping by!!  See you soon!


  1. So pretty! Love those colors together! I'm getting better at remembering there is inspiration everywhere! I forget that I can take away pieces to jump start my brain LOL :)

  2. Yes! Inspiration is everywhere, even in the most common and silly things and I love that! Your bedspread is gorgeous so your card turned out gorgeous too! Love the color combo :)
