CSS September Inspiration Blog Hop

Welcome to the CSS Inspiration Blog Hop. Carolina gave us this photo of a very inviting room from Ikea as our inspiration.

I love the texture on the headboard and bedspread. So that was my inspiration for my card. Sorry for the dark photo. We have not seen sun for days here in SE Pennsylvania.

I created the backdrop for the furniture with my Martha Stewart Score Board. I ran the chair through my Big Kick with a diamond embossing folder.

If you've been following the hop from the beginning, you should have come from Lori's blog. If not, you will want to start over at StampTV and follow the entire hop to be inspired. Then we invite you to play along and post your inspired creation over at StampTV.

Now head over to Peggy's blog next for more inspiration.

Supplies
Stamps: Fine Furnishings & Fine Furnishings Additions
Paper: Olive, Khaki, Chocolate, Vanilla & Cosmo Cricket Social Club - Martini Digital Paper
Ink: Brown Vivid Ink
Other: Chocolate & Vanilla Lace, Twine, Small Half Pearls
