Inspiration from your home.

 Hope you all had a good Mothers Day and got spoilt rotten.  I had some lovely gifts Cupcakes, Chocolates, Flowers,  a gorgeous box of smellies but best of all the company of my two wonderful children their partners, my two gorgeous grandchildren and my Mum,perfect!

For our challenge at Try it on Tuesday this week we'd like you to create a Card and share with us something from your home as inspiration for the design.  I wouldn't say we are nosey just a little bit inquisitive.  The challenge is sponsored this week by One Stop Card Crafts and to be in with a chance of winning their £10 voucher you must link them in your post.

My inspiration came from the bed in the spare bedroom. Mind you don't look too closely as the bedlinen looks a bit "distressed".  

I used a mask and Faded Jeans distress ink to create the diamond background then used Vintage Photo DI around the edges.  The stamp is by Crafty Individuals CI-069 stamped using Momento Espresso and edges with Faded jeans DI then stickled around the edges. The flower, gems and lace are from my stash.

We do hope you'll join us this week, so please take a look at the fabulous DT creations over on the challenge blog to get some ideas.

Enjoy your day,and thanks for stopping by,

Pat xx
