My Time Inspiration Challenge

***OMGosh! This was supposed to post at 12:00 AM, but I had it set for PM! So sorry!***

So today is Saturday and it's time for the My Time challenge. This week's challenge is an inspiration challenge, and it's being hosted by Kristin. This is the inspiration piece Lauren gave us.
So I was inspired by two things: the colors (love blue and brown) and the pillows. I immediately thought of PTI's set On My Couch. So this is what I came up with.
I started with the Mojo Monday sketch for this month (I just realized my stripes should have been bigger...ugghhh!) and this retired paper from SU called Parisian Breeze. I chose the floral for the couch and background because of the floral pattern in the inspiration piece. I paper pieced the couch and stamped the pillows on the dp as well. The pillows are popped up on the couch for dimension. The scalloped border on the bottom is an EK Success punch (the ones that fold flat...love those). I seemed to have lost my mojo on this one...it just looks so plain or something to me! Maybe it's because I didn't use one copic marker or any **sparkle** on it! I think those two things are becoming my signature style!


If you want more inspiration, please stop by the blogs of the My Time DT. Here are the links.

Oh shoot LIsa! I REALLY wanted to mimic that taylored pillow look from the inspo picture but never quite got there....I should have had the couch set. These pillows are PERFECT! I love your sweet and welcoming couch. I could totally curl up there with a good book and some tea. :) Great card, my friend.

Lisa this is just magnificent! That couch is the perfect piece for this inspiration and the pillows are beautiful - not sure now you got the striped one but it's just right! Nice job with the mojo sketch, too.

Glad you figgered out the time thing - I did pop by first thing before we left for the day so I'm glad I'm came back - it was worth the look for sure!

Oh Lisa! I don't think your mojo went anywhere but straight to your craft room! This may be a different style for you, but I LOVE it! It looks shabby chic to me! I've NEVER been able to capture the shabby chic look so I'm a little jealous :) Oh and that Parisian Breeze paper is seriously one of SU's best...I don't know WHY I didn't buy it! Perfect for this challenge, as is the On My Couch set! Beautiful card...
