Etsy Inspired Card

This week the challenge issued on one of my yahoo groups was to pick out an inspiration piece at this etsy store: Joom I loved all the pieces in this store but had a hard time picking out a Stampin' Up! set that would work well with it. Finally, after talking to our host Stefanie I had an idea. Well, the first idea didn't work, I got frustrated and scrapped it (I have since gotten the inspiration I needed to finish it so that will be later).

I decided to draw from the colors in this gorgeous pillow. I absolutely LOVE these colors together!!! Hoping my partner likes this card.

I did do some paper piercing in the top right corner but it was hard to photo. I also finally got my bow tying down using the twine that I have seen on so many blogs lately and admired how well it looked on the card.

Card details:
Stamp set: Baroque Motifs, Simply Said
Cardstock: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze
Inks: Same as above
Accesories: Rhinestone Ice circle Brads, 1 1/4" circle punch, 1 3/8" circle punch, dog tag punch, twine, Chocolate Ribbon
