Inspiration

What inspires you??? Maybe a picture, a quote, your kids? Browsing through the Splitcoast challenges the other day, I decided I needed some inspiration. There were many good ideas...one was finding inspiration in your home. I looked around...NOPE. No inspiration here. At least not on that day. I remembered seeing a card that was inspired by a catalog picture of bedding and I thought..."Now THAT'S an idea!" So I went to JCPenney.com to look at bedding. Something tugged at me when I ran across this set:
I don't know if it was the colors...I think it was the wavy pattern that got me thinking. I have one of the old Creative Memories 12 inch decorative cutters and knew I could make a similar pattern with it. So off I went!
Here's what I created:
I may have gone a little overboard with the glitter (thanks splitcoast bling challenge!), but I think it turned out okay. Here are the details:

Ink: Elegant Eggplant
Paper: Eggplant, Amethyst, Lilac, Gable Green, Whisper White
Stamps: Embrace Life bamboo image; Love & Joy
Accessories: Cosmo Glitter in purple and green, rub-ons

Enjoy!

Wow! Shannon! That is wonderful! Looks just like the bedding! And I don't think you went overboard on the glitter at all.
