Inkspirations Challenge #96 - Thinking of You ....

Hi all, this is my card for this week's Inkspirations Challenge, using these colours:-

I recently made a card similar to this & liked it so much I thought I would make a version in the challenge colours.  I just love the armchair, which has been given some texture by kissing the chair stamp with the Texture wheel.  Then the chair has been fussy cut & popped up on dimensionals. 

The border print has been created by combining the Parlor Prints background stamp with the Texture wheel - makes for a fabulous pattern.  The floor was created by masking, stamping & sponging.

As usual, the Design Team have a great mix of inspirational pieces for you to enjoy, so check them out at the links below:-

Helen, this is FABULOUS!! I love how you combined stamps to achieve such a great result. Love the cushion and the rug, and the 'kissing' to give the chair texture. I'm so pleased to have such a clever friend! LOL.
