Playing in Paradise Challenge 8 Thinking of You!

Hello there!

As I stared at the inspiration photo for the Playing in Paradise Challenge I kept going back to the Tree from the Wilson Designs Ride Away With Me set, and I just sort of built the card from there. Since the focal point is muted I kept the tone in my card as such. I took some inspiration from the roses on the bedding and added some pink and white floral rosettes to my lace trim. I love that it gives just a little pop of color as such in the photograph.

As many of my regular readers and friends know, I am living without all my crafty items for awhile, and on this card I was really missing my embossing folders. I had many ideas, but less is more sometimes! :-) 
My sentiment is from Wilson Designs Ride Away with Me.
Isn't this a unique bed?  It's a unique room really...take a good look above the pillows! It's definitely a good mix of masculine and feminine. Interesting to say the least and I had fun using it as inspiration! 
I am also playing along with Simply Create: Do It Yourself
I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend!

Lovely card!! I like how you use the color on the edge of the punched latice. The colors of the flowers draws the eye to the lovely lace. Nice!

I love the simplicity of your card. It ties in to the photo beautifully and has just the perfect amount of pink for a little splash of color.
