Mojo and Inspiration - Owl Birthday

Happy Monday!

Can you believe January's almost over?  Time just seems to slip away, much too quickly.  I have a card to show you!  My friend Marie started an inspiration challenge over at her blog, From Boots to Stamps.  Here is her source of inspiration, from the Behr paint website:

I am a huge earthy colors girl.  I want this room!  Even though it uses such a bold color (which looks to me like Dusty Durango, by the way), it seems like the perfect place to relax.  I just love all of the patterns here!  I also used this week's Mojo Monday sketch for my card.

You can see that I pulled inspiration from the colors in the picture, and I am so in love with those pillows!  I used a stamp from the Circle Circus stamp set and heat-embossed it with White Embossing Powder to re-create the pattern.  I also heat-embossed the Chocolate Chip panel with the Sweet Swirls wheel.  The finished card measures 5-1/4" square, a perfect fit for our Medium Square Envelopes.

I invite you to play along!  Please visit Marie's blog and check out the other creations on Stampin' Addicts as well!
