Just Us Girls #294 - Photo Week

Hello friends!  Happy Memorial Day weekend!  Do you have any plans?  I'm planning on relaxing at our cabin with family and friends. 
 
This week is Photo Week over at Just Us Girls, and I'm the hostess this week.  I chose this picture that I just fell in love with!
 
Here's a close-up.  What inspiration can you take from this beautiful entry way?
*paint the inside of the door* Pin Obsessed: Favorite Finds - This Silly Girl's Life
 
Here's my take on it.  I started by sponging some distress inks onto the front of my card base.  Then I die cut this cover plate (it reminded me of the design on the mirror in the photo), and added the flower, like in the rug.  The leaves were die cut from linen that I believe was stained with tea.  I found these stored with the dies.  It looked like the color of the floor.  I added some pearls and a sentiment on the banner. 
 
You can see more form our design team and our guest at these blogs.
 
 
Thanks for stopping by!

Love that die cut background!

The background colors you sponged flow together beautifully. I like the die-cut overlay, because (while it is in a contrasting color, it gives more focus on the intensity of the background. I'll have to add the "marigold distress ink" to my wish list, too. :)
