Presents for You

I really like what Kim Hughes is doing with her stamp company Paper Smooches.  The designs have such CUTE factor, and nice clean lines.  I was perusing the Paper Smooches blog and found a couple of challenges to do...this one is an inspiration challenge with this pretty room:


and here is where I went with it....


I've used two cute digi images from PS, and they're free too!  Then I created the card to really have the same feel as the inspiration room, the tufted white headboard, the polka-dotted walls, the black borders on the lamp...all done in paper, with some scoring and some circle punches.  I did add a little detail to the image with my multi-liner (the stripes in one present, the polka-dots in the other). 


I dig how it turned out :)  

Thanks for taking a look!  We are still in the deep-freeze of winter here, and I hope it ends soon!
