This card is for the Papertrey Inspiration Spring Fling Challenge going on at the PTI blog. Each designer chose an inspiration picture to inspire us to create a card. I chose Becky Oehler's picture. I just love some reds, greens, and blacks!!! Here is the link to the inspiration picture.

I am using two PTI sets. The flowers are from Flower Garden and the sentiment is from Mailbox Greetings. I stamped all the flowers in Palette Noir ink and then did the two step stamping with PTI pure poppy, hibiscus, spring moss, and ripe avocado. I also used some SU yoyo yellow and only orange. To create the look of the bedding I sponged all the spring moss cardstock with spring moss ink to make it richer. I stamped the lines using a CHF fine lines backgrounder in versamark to create the striped sheets. I kept my card pretty simple in kepting with the bright clean colors of the inspiration picture. I used a small long scalloped frame for my sentiment to give the look of the scalloped edged pillow in the center of the bed. I finished my card with some black double stitched ribbon and assorted colored buttons since buttons were used in the picture as well.
