Divine Divas Inspiration Challenge #16!

I LOVE our inspiration for this challenge!!!  Check it out!

Seriously, this is soooo my style!  I just love distressed, comfy, casual furniture : )  I also love almost all things Pottery Barn!!!  Here's the card I came up with:

I used the color scheme from the inspiration photo.  I also distressed all the edges with the Tim Holtz Distressing Tool and Ranger Tea Dye Distress Ink.  I used this image because of the rooster and overall country feel.  I hope this picture inspires you to create!  If you upload to an online gallery just use DDIC16!  Now check out what the other Divas did:
Thank you so much for stopping by today!
I forgot to mention that I used Mojo Monday 113 for my sketch again : )

Great take on the inspiration photo! Great card, coloring. Just one thing: That's a HEN not a rooster. She's surrounded by her chicks :) Can tell you're not a country girl!

Hugs, Mom

Fantastic card, Kerri! If I had a lot of money I think the only place I'd shop is Pottery Barn!!!

What a fun take on that inspiration piece. I could totally get lost in a room like that today...all those books and the great big pillows. I love the embossing folder that you used. It goes great with the artwork in the background.
