Be Inspired!

This is my first Be Inspired Challenge that Beate has every week. I like looking at a picture and seeing what I can come up with.

Well this is what I imagined. I didn't have all the stamps I would have liked for this card but I think I made it work. I used one of the large flowers from the pretties kit and cut it down to create the brocade blue flowers. For the flower middle I used my circle punches and punched out some So Saffron CS and then I used Twill background stamp, stamping one way and then turning it 90 degrees and stamping again to make a crosshatch look.

Supplies:
Stamp Sets: Stem Sayings, Twill
Paper: So Saffron, Pumpkin Pie
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Pumpkin Pie, Brocade Blue Stampin' Write Marker
Accessories: Pretties Kit, Regals Buttons, Linen Thread, Black Grosgrain Ribbon, Stampin' Dimensionals, Mini Glue Dots, Sponge, 3/4" circle punch, 1/2" circle punch
