Paper Smooches Sparks

I decided to give the Sparks challenge another shot (the rules said you could play along as much as you'd like). Here's the inspiration photo for this month:

And here's my card:

The big white circles on the red wall were my focus. Then I used an image from the PTI Stamp-a-Faire set to look similar to the design on the pillows (I didn't have a damask stamp, so I thought this was close enough). I stamped it with SU white ink on the green. Then I used my new Sew Easy to stitch around the edge like the black stitching on the pillows in the picture.

I took inspiration from the curvy black leg of the side table in the picture and put it to use with the label on my card. The yellow of the bird is from the side yellow wall in the picture, and the hat has the colors of the cute orange and green stuffed frog on the bed.

All the cardstock is PTI. The circles were cut with my SU circle punch and the bird colored with Copics. The bird and sentiment are both Paper Smooches. This card is going to be for my Mother-in-Law whose birthday is coming up at the end of this month. In case you can't tell, I've enjoyed playing along with this Sparks challenge! There's an awesome prize up for grabs that I wouldn't mind winning at all ;)
