A little Inspiration

Hi Again,
I have been dying to make a card for Makeesha's most recent challenge. It's an inspiration challenge based on this gorgeous bedding.
I just haven't had the time this week to be able to play in between illness, drs appts and last minute stuff before I get the keys to my new house. As time was ticking by this evening I thought what the hell I'll have a quick play and made this simple but really lovely card.
I wanted to use Not Quiet Navy but I couldn't find my cardstock which is odd cos it's filed in my filing cabinet so I used Blue Bayou for possibly the last time before it reitres (Sniff). I used Kaiser Craft Stamps on the background. I didn't use the handle as I wanted a rough, rustic sort of stamped image just to give it a little character and feel I achieved that. I have an engagement Party on Saturday night so thought this was a simple and elegant card I could give the lovely couple.
Stamp Set: Occasional Greetings, Kaiser Craft Stamps for background
Ink: Blue Bayou
Cardstock: Blue Bayou, Sahara Sand
Accessories: White Taffeta Ribbon, Mat Pack, Pretties Kit, Glue Dots
Thanks for looking!
Dani
