Inspired By Pinterest

Cool! Welcome Saturday! Gorgeous day today. Woke up very early. In-laws left this morning to Perth. Fight out of the country tomorrow morning:) House is slient and a lot of cleaning done this morning :)
So here I am with a cuppa of coffee and writing this post :) Last two days were busy so I couldn't not post my Inspired by Pinterest on Thursday. Here it is.

I love love the colours on the picture above and the hanging lamps are so beautiful. Then the stars on the wall is awesome. So those are my inspirations. For the colours, I wanted a bit more than the grey and green. I chose, ColourQ #137 colours to make my card.

Here is my take on the picture and the colour challenge.

Cardstock: Basic Grey cardstock from SU and White cardstock from Wplus9
Stamp sets: Lighten Up and Out of limb additions from PTI
Inks: Orchid Opulence, Tempting Turquoise and Kiwi Kiss from SU and Momento Black Ink and Colourbox Frost White ink
Accessories: White embossing powder, heat gun, grey twine from twinery and Corner Chomper.

Love the colours agains the grey. Looks like Grey is my new white lol! Need to more grey cardstock though!

I am working on some gorgeous stuff for a big announcement on Monday. Very excited. Cannot wait to share. So make sure you visit :)

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!
