Friday Stamp Simply Challenge - Inspired by Yellow and Grey

Today Sharon has this lovely den/livingroom picture to inspire us to use yellow and grey with white or ivory.

As soon as I saw the picture I knew I'd be using my couch stamps from PTI. I used the Traffic Jam Embossing Folder to create the look of the cupboards in the background and Basic Grey Archaic for the rug! As you can see - I get very literal when using an inspiration picture!

This is my last week as Guest Designer for Stamp Simply - time sure does fly when you're having fun!!! Thank you so much Sharon for inviting me to share with all of you this month!

We'd love to have you join along in the Stamp Simply Challenge with us this week! You can play anytime, as many times as you want!

Your card is like a dollhouse room! Somehow it feels "realer" than the photo of the actual room -how can that be? I guess it's the magic of creativity. Very fine work,
