{1.28.2012} SPARKS picture perfect

Ready for the newest SPARKS challenge from Paper Smooches?

week 4

A few things from the photo inspired me… first, the great pattern in the headboard.  I tried to find a Silhouette file to mimic the pattern, but ended up with this gorgeous floral pattern instead.  Then I decided to use the colors in the photo as well.  Orange and teal are just a lovely combo, don’t you think?

Check out the other girls sharing their SPARKS cards this week.
