Fabulous Inspiration: {PP49}

Happy Paper Players Sunday, friends!  This week The Paper Players have a bonus challenge for you...Anything Goes!!  Your favorite technique, your favorite colors, your favorite sketch--whatever your creative mind can dream up!  
 Today, I have an inspiration card to share with you.  Since my paper crafting journey began, I notice colors and patterns everywhere but especially in home and fashion catalogs.  Does this happen to you?  I'm looking at a catalog or I see a top, dress or bag on someone and think about what stamps, paper and colors I could use to turn it into a card!  Today's card was inspired by this beautiful quilt at The Company Store:
Isn't it gorgeous?  So...do you see what I see?  I can't help but see Fabulous Florets in Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Rich Razzleberry and Naturals Ivory.  And, here's my interpretation:
It's a pretty simple one, just layered all the stamps from Fabulous Florets in my inspiration colors onto Naturals Ivory cardstock.  I used the Woodgrain background stamp in Sahara Sand to mimic the woodgrain on the side table and headboard in my inspiration photo.  Super simple and packs a big punch in person!  What do you think?  Would you like to play along?  With such a wide-open challenge, we hope you'll find time to join us at this week!  Check out all the design team inspiration at The Paper Players and then link up your lovely creation by midnight (PST) Friday, June 3rd to be considered for the design team's favorites!  Have a great day, friends!

supplies:
stamps: fabulous florets, woodgrain, curly cute
paper: naturals ivory CS
ink: old olive, rich razzleberry, pumpkin pie, sahara sand classic ink
