Lovely. Beautiful. Darling.

Jay Gee's Nook Challenge  has such fabulous inspiration colors.  I love the soft subtle feel to all the photos.  So, I used the colors and the soft feel as my inspiration for this card.  I also really let the patterned paper do the talking.  I stamped the background once with Ranger Pumice Stone ink and the PTI Polka Dot stamps.  I then cut out banners from the coordinating paper and stitched them on to the main patterned paper panel.  Added a couple of gems and adhered the panel to the card base with dimensionals.  Super quick but I love the soft feel.  What about you?  What inspires you from Jay Gee's inspiration photo below?

Oh my god! I never would have known you made this card (except that it's on your blog - ha), but it is gorgeous! Don't tell me you're one of those people who can do basically anything on a card and make it look good. You've inspired me to try a card with this palette now. Seriously love.

I love how you've bought all those soft subtle colours into your card Lynn, that paper is amazing and the banners are the perfect embellishment :0)
Not got round to these photos yet, the muted colours are quite a challenge for me!
