Paper Smooches Sparks: Picture Perfect

Wow...I really can't get over the fact that we're already at the end of January...time certainly does fly!  And it's another Monday (hope your week gets off the a great start!) so we have another awesome PaperSmooches Sparks Challenge for you. This week is our Picture Perfect Inspiration week.  
I absolutely loved the mix/match of patterns and the touch of gray among the orange.  So...here's how I took inspiration for the card. The orange strip of paper in the background was stamped with the Potpourri set, inked in white and embossed.  I then inked the edges of the cream panels in light gray ink and added the sentiment from Word Salad.  Last put not least I had fun paper piecing flowers from the  Needle Little Love set. I love the delicate feel of the stitching on those flowers.  

I hope your inspired to play along, but before you go be sure to check out the inspiration from the other design team members.
