Picture This!

Here's this weeks sample for the Picutre Inspiration Challenge at Stampin' Royalty!
It's pretty easy to figure out and actually very easy to put together...
I started out with a Naturals White cardbase and a Sahara Sand panel. I then cut a Naturals White panel and embossed just the bottom portion with my Big Shot/Stripes folder.  I added 2 strips of Naturals white, one on top of the other (it's hard to tell they are actually layered from the picture)
I then cut a strip of Sahara Sand Patterned Paper and made it into a 'banner'.  I cut 2 shapes from the Apothecary Accents Framelits, in Sahara Sand & Naturals white, then stamped the flowers in Sahara Sand, then colored them with a blender pen.  I stamped and punched out the sentiment, and punched the heart of Cherry Cobbler cardstock. I sponged the edges of all the elements, added some piercing, then put them all together!

Your card is sooo gorgeous, with a Victorian feel to it. The stripes embossing remind me of wainscotting and the softly colored flowers of an old fashioned china pattern. Beautifully done!
