A Photo Inspiration Challenge at Through the Craft Room Door

Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice

Today is the big kick-off for the new Design Team over at Through the Craft Room Door, and boy are we excited! I hope you will visit us both at the challenge blog and over in the fun discussion group. so many really nice people hang out there to chat as well as encourage one another in this great love of papercrafting! there are some fabby prizes to be won this go 'round, so please come play along!

Our new challenge is a photo inspiration one. I love this photo! such great colors and textures, and man, do I want that wallpaper in my dining room! grins! I have a thing for toile.... sigh......

I chose this wonderful image from Jellypark to start my card. just seemed right since our photo is a bathroom with tub! ;) and the person I am sending this to is recuperating from surgery, so I want her to kick back and relax as much as possible. hopefully this card will encourage her to do just that! papers are old Crate Paper Twirl. the wine glass in covered in crystal effects, bubbles are covered in stickels, and the flowers on the tub & dots on the tub mat are made with a pearly gel pen. green is sooooooooooo not scanning for me right now, but the tub mat is green irl. that AMAZING crochet trim is a bit of vintage that I picked up with David when we were at a lovely little antique shop a few weeks back. isn't it gorgeous? just seemed so perfect to use here.... buttons are vintage as well. reminds me of how my great-grandmother's bathroom used to always look......

Awwwww....I think this is a fabulous card for anyone who is either recovery from surgery, like your friend or for anyone who needs some time to simply rest and relax. A little bit of pampering always make a girl feel better!!

I love all the wonderful detail you added and think this image is perfect!!

I'm also quite happy to be creating with you again and think you are a dear person - so kind, sweet and caring!!
