Inspiration Challenge

So today I really wanted to stamp and had no place to really begin! So I went to the inspiration challenge posted on Sturdays to see if anything spraked my creativity! This what the inspiration! The image they had was from a bedroom at the Thomas Benton Grey House Bed and Breakfast This room looks very nice and country...which is not my stamping style, but I thought, Hey why not stretch myself today! So country I tried! Here is a picture of the room:

Titled Blue Room

I just loved the white picket fence headboard and the 3 framed hearts really spoke to me. Foe some reason though I decided that I needed to have some lacy details in my card, I think lace, to me, is the epitomy of classic french county!

So here is my card! What do you think?

I used the heart in the center of the bed and used flowers for the two side ones instead of more he

arts! I really do like how it turned out and I hope you like it too! I just love the heart "lace" detail, but my favorite would have to be the glitter...anything that shimmers really! Although that blue taffeta ribbon really does add a whole lot to the card...if I do say so myself! I wanted the sentiment to stad out a bit more and so I used a bolder sentiment, I like how it makes a statement, just as I hope the card does when I send it to it's recipient!

Here is the supply breakdown!
