4 Chicks Challenge

 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge #78 is a inspiration challenge. I have no idea how they got a picture of my living room, but I was inspired. I used this challenge to try out a new technique I have seen used before. I inked my embossing folder to color the non-embossed sections. I used a piece of silk ribbon to match the shine of the coffee table in the picture. I love, love this chair cut from Cricut cartridge Sentimentals. I cut this chair out when I bought this cartridge back in August and am just using it now. I also used Flower Shoppe for the roses. I love how this turned out so much that I have already made another.

My card:

My inspiration:

I think this would look really nice with out the chair, but I really just needed an excuse to use it.

Have a good rest of the weekend,
