MMB#9 - Amazing!

Hi friends!  Hope you are all doing well - it's been a really busy week for me and I was so happy to have time to play at one of my favorite places - WPlus9 Monday Mood Board.  A new inspiration photo is posted by Dawn every Monday and there is always plenty to draw from.  Look at this beauty with the rustic linen, crochet, plaid and floral elements!  I immediately homed in on the red and green and the crochet.   I stamped a pattern of pretty paisley on a field of leaves and flowers and added a crochet flower (thanks mom!).  I know I'm lucky - my mom always makes me flowers with the left overs from her own projects.  I don't have a whole lot so I use them sparingly.  

The paisley was lots of fun to stamp - I like that I can "build my own" with whatever color I'm in the mood for! 

Have a great weekend - I hope you find some time to play!

Jeanne

I just love this card. I am so glad I saw it, because I bought that paisley set, and it has been sitting on my desk taunting me all week. I couldn't figure out what the heck to do with all those stamps! If you don't mind, I'll be casing this gorgeous card.

This is so GOOD!!! It is such a good take on the inspiration photo, the colors are identical and the whole "mood" of it is the same. You are so lucky to have a mom to make those flowers for you! I love the little twine you added too. Really beautiful card Jeanne.
