Here is this week’s Inspiration:
And here is my card for CBC01:
I was instantly drawn to the earthy colors and the little topiary plants on the steps. And, the design element that made my heart skip a beat were the pleats on the couch cover!!! My friend, Eve, makes beautifully pleated purses and I HEART anything pleated (except for my pants)!
The earth topiary stamp is from Odd Bird Planet. It was the reason why I even started looking at Odd Bird Planet Stamps!
