Here we go again...

Kristina Werner has issued her challenge #13, and this week it is inspired by the colours in the following picture:





How beautiful is that? Makes me want to dive in and have a great big long sleep.

So here is the card that I came up with using both the design and colours from the above picture as my inspiration. I was really surprised by how great these colours looked together... I had never considered them as a combination. (Although they do look much better in real life... the lighting is poor and the colours just havent come up as good in the photos) The card itself came together really quickly and if you look closely you will see that I used the cushion at the back left as the inspiration for the card. Its actually a very simple card. I wanted to get a feeling of "richness" to the card.. and the paisley background stamp seemed to work really well to achieve that. Thanks Kristina for another cool challenge.
