Color Monday

Christian Paper Crafts Creative Blog is hosting the Color Monday challenge. This challenge always gets my brain going! Here is the photo inspiration for today's design.

Doesn't this bedroom just whisper serenity? Purple is my favorite color and I love the black and white background accents.

Here is my card design based on the colors and layout of the bedroom pictured above. I stayed with a very simple sketch of my own. I wanted clean, straight lines with some filigree as the focal point---just like that luxurious bedding. I used plain, crisp white card stock, a piece of lavender paper, a clear, filigree stamp (don't remember where I got it--I think it's Hero Arts but I'm not sure). Embellishments are vintage black silk seam binding (from my Mama's sewing stash--I tell you that stash is worth it's weight in gold!!) and a couple faux pearls. The silver initial "B" is actually from the jewelry-making department at Hobby Lobby that I originally purchased to embellish the cake knife and server set for my daughter's wedding. I think I'll give this card to my daughter and son-in-law...just because they are a wonderful young couple.
