Home Inspirations

This week  at Try it on Tuesdays we have been challenged to make a card inspired by a colour scheme from our home. There are some fantastic examples by my fellow teamies.
My card is inspired by a cross stitch picture. Most of my house is is neutral colours, with large areas of pictures grouped together. Cross stitch was a favourite hobby of mine for many years, here is my inspitation .
For my card I used Wendy Vechi and Tim Holtz stamps, vintage photo and antique linen distress inks.
I did have a picture of the group of pictures, but as I can only get it posted sideways, I had to give up.
You must include a picture of your inspiration as well as your card. There is a £10 voucher up for grabs from our sponser One Stop Cards.
Thankyou for taking time to take a look.
