Let's Get Inspired!

It's time for Beate's BIC26 weekly challenge! This weeks challenge is so clean and calm and crisp. I love this one. It comes to you straight from the Pottery Barn catalog....

When I first looked at this one I was drawn to the curtains in the background. I love the blue...isn't that Pacific Blue? ;)...and the vanilla together and it looks like a beautiful window in between. I couldn't take my eyes off of that. When I started my card, however, I was just not able to 'feel' it. How funny is that! Whatever! lol!
Anyway, I opted to be inspired by the focal point. The couch. Here's the direction I took with this challenge....
I have so been wanting to use this paper and when I saw it this morning I thought it was perfect! I used one of my Unity sentiments. This one is from the kit Something Within..it's one of my all time fav's! The paper is from a kit that I got from Studio Calico...thank you AJ for the new addiction! The flowers are Making Memories.
That's it for me. I am off to get caught up on some stuff around here...hopefully will be back for more stamping today. Be sure and check out the rest of Beate's team...
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you all have a wonderful day! :)
Post you soon!
