This is my take on this week's inspiration challenge! Not sure how it would fare at Neiman Marcus, but I like it! I was heavily influenced by the color, flowers and overall feel of the handbag. The large brown flowers are stamped off first for a softer color effect. Also, I stamped linen BG (in Ranger Antique Linen distress ink) over the entire background before adding the smaller flowers, the flourish leaves and the large flower centers. I also sponged the edges of the main image and the sentiment with the distress ink. I kept looking for a place to put ribbon, but ultimately decided to forego the ribbon all together. Fun challenge, Karen!

Lovely - the brads & tabs are a great touch! And I have the distress ink too and never thought to use it for linen, but I love the look...will definitely be trying that, thanks for the idea! Thank you for playing!
