Amazing in Gold and White with Pastels

Taheerah posted this awesome photo as the inspiration for the Cure For the Monday Blues Challenge and I instantly fell in love with it. Because she kindly extended the deadline, I managed to squeeze a card in for it today! I loved the whites and golds that are dominant in the photo, but the bits of black and pastel colors, like the wall in the background also inspired me. The computer screen made me think to pull out this awesome Newton's Nook Frame stamp and emboss it in gold. The text on the screen led me to search for a mixed font sentiment from WPlus9 and the acrylic chair just SCREAMED shaker to me. So... this is what came from all of that thinking...


I filled my shaker with some white and tiny clear sequins. I kind of love it. Like, lots. For reals, though. And those Little B flower dies.... LOVE! I added those, as I felt it needed just a *touch* of pink and the floral paper decor in the photo inspired that a bit, as well.


So, there you have it!

Have a Happy!
