City Crafter Challenge #67

The amazingly talented Ros is
hosting this week and has given a Photo Inspiration Challenge .

This lovely bed set is from the Vintage 
Collection, but your creation doesn't have to be vintage. You can make a card, ATC, tag or any sort
of project, the way this photo "speaks" to you. A fun idea!

I used my Fall In Love Kit from Pixie
Dust Paperie . Kirsty is a master at putting together matching elements. I used the American Crafts Pastel Pink cardstock and Melissa Frances' Jackie, Kayla and Order. I cut the piece of Order with a Spellbinders Blossom die. I inked all edges, except the blossom, with Antique Linen Distress Ink.

The doily came in the kit, as well as the 
crinkled seam binding. The Queen & Co pearls are from my stash. I used Jet Black Archival Ink from Ranger for my stamped bird, which was a closeout item at Pat Catan's last year. I colored it with Antique Linen, Spun Sugar and Peeled Paint Distress Inks using a number 3 round, red sable brush.
A simple, basic card... which is how I see the photo.
Have a fabulous day!

How beautiful, Linda! Love all the pink and feminine touches here, and love that sweet bird. It looks fantastic layered on the flower die and then on the doily. Love the addition of the pearl details, too. :)
