I like the idea of this card, but I don't like the way it looks yet. I stamped the girl, bra and armoire on white and cut out the upper portion of the CS. Then I layered it onto designer paper for the wallpaper of the room. I like the picture with the saying and I like the upper third of the card, I just don't care for the bottom. I need help...any suggestions?

Thank you for the input. I agree that the floor needs to be textured. I'll try the Canvas BG and see how that looks. I did her "stuff" on the floor as an afterthought to see if it helped any. It didn't, so I'll probably omit that part. I'm working on a swap with the Fashion Statements set and am hoping this won't be too much work for 11 cards.
I'll post the results later. Thanks again!! You guys are great and very encouraging!!

Love your Card and unique idea. Ideas for the floor. I am thinking that the base of the floor should be a pattern. Wide at the base of the wall-paper and shading a little narrow at the bottom of the card.. Looking at background stamps in new Catty and I see the Weathered Background stamp, looks like the old Crackle one..Or Geometric, a funky look with the flower pattern...lots of ideas here.
