Saturday's Inspiration

I finally got to participate in today's Inspiration challenge over at SCS. It was a picture of a beautiful room from an Inn in New Salem Illinois. I am from Illinois, and have never heard of New Salem, which is no surprise, but I am now curious as to where it is, so after posting this, I will be looking it up!! The girls are here, so I have to hurry, but I wanted to get away for a minute so I threw this card together. I just hope it isn't too far off from the challenge, I looked at the picture at 7am and just now got to stamp, so I haven't seen it since then. If it isn't, oh well, it's supposed to be what we were inspired to do right???

Just some quick stuff about the card. It is stamped with black stazon on Whisper White. I colored it then used my aquapainter. The eggs were stamped seperately and colored then cut out. I did two of them to make it look like a bunch of eggs. I then put Crystal Effects all over them. The top panel is stamped with the SU background Aida Cloth, which was one of those "must haves" that didn't see ink until today!! Atleast I don't think it has. The sentiment was done by using the word window punch. I punched out the sentiment, then two of each color. I layered them to make them look like they were long. I then put that all on top of the two pieces I punched out using the large and small oval punch. I sponged the edges of everything with Creamy Caramel to soften it all up. Hope you like it and I hope you are having a fabulous weekend. Off to take the girls to dinner!!! Wish me luck!!
