Blogger's Challenge - Week #12 - Inspiration


This week's blogger's challenge was to find something in our daily lives that inspires us - either in color combination or layout or symetry of the object.

I went around and around on what to use and finally settled on my chair that I use every day. It is funny how things around us are taken for granted and we never actually stop to look at the astetics of the item.

This is a Hitchcock chair that we inherited when cleaning out a Great Aunt's house. I have always loved the detail of the painting on the back of the chair and thought that I would use that for my inspiration.



So I created this card using the Apple Cider designer papers and the Give Thanks Fall set. I didn't have a stamp with a bowl of frit so used the pail of apples instead. Enjoy!

Great card Marilyn, I love that you didn't replicate the colors of the chair, but just the idea of it!
