Shopping Our Stash #260: Inspired by your bedding

Hey everyone and happy Tuesday!!
It's time for a new challenge over at 

This week, challenge #260 is....
Get inspired by your bedding!
(create a project based on something that inspires you from your bedding. It could be a pattern, colors, the number of pillows you have, maybe even the bedding you have been eyeing at the store.)

For my card, I went with the colors of my bedding. My bedding is a soft cream and taupe with some darker brown stitching here and there.

 Here is a quick peek at my actual bedding (taken with my phone's camera, not the best picture but you get the idea lol)

Here is the card that I created based on my bedding:

I used a soft brown cardstock for my card base. I'm not sure what color it is, maybe Crumb Cake, but I pulled it from an older variety pack from SU! that I have had for about two years. I used a piece of vellum that has some stripes in it, I thought that went well with the stripes in the back pillows. For my image layer, I used an stamp from SU that I have had for awhile and stamped it with some brown ink. I added a bit of wink of stella to it for some shimmer and some tiny pearls to the center of three of the flowers. I added my greeting and a bit of ribbon to finish off my card. The only thing I used that is less than a month old for me was the vellum. Everything else I have had in my stash for at least 6 months. 

Be sure to head over to the Shopping Our Stash Challenge Blog to see what my design team sisters created. I hope you will decide to make a project and join us, I would love to see what you create!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!
I hope you have a great crafty day!
