Extreme! Bedding Inspired card

with my new bedding 
This week I took entering challenges to another level and all because of the challenge at Shopping Our Stash.  The challenge was to make a project inspired by your bedding.... which made me realise just how uninspiring my bedding was!

But out shopping on Saturday I spotted the lovely bedding shown in the second picture above. Honestly, I do need the bedding, I didn't JUST buy it so I could join in the challenge!

I painted the tag with a mix of Paper Artsy paints and stamped it with stamps by Paper Artsy, Waffle Flower and Concord and 9th. I added highlights using Ranger black and white liquid enamel.  I stamped the word 'dream' (Concord and 9th) , as a little joke on the bedding theme!

I'd also like to enter:

Ahahaha! Isn't it funny when Blogland and real life collide-- especially right in the bedding department!? Well, I totally support your shopping decision (LOVE that comforter), and the card is clever and fun and perfect! Thanks for also linking at SOS, nighty-night!

Well Marina, I love that comforter too but I love your card inspired by it even more!! You took every element of the comforter and totally transferred it to this tag and card, that is very creative!!!
Thank you for going shopping at the linen store and joining the challenge at Shopping Our Stash, hope you come back and join us again next time.

I find this card looking so cool, the spots, the flowers, a bit of retro feel with modern touches.
And seeing it with your bedding I'm so impressed how you were able to replicate the look using your stash.
