Inspired By All The Little Things

Another Saturday means another Inspired By All The Little Things challenge!  We have an incredible photo to get your mojo moving!  I was inspired by the colors, leaves and stripes in the afghan.  I had first pulled out an autumn coffee cup digi, but then my card took a life of its own - lol!  I started with the background brushstroke stripes using distress oxide inks (I'm really loving the coverage these inks give!). These leaves from Simon Says Stamp's Stamptember release - Ornate Leaves - are my new faves, so arranged a trio of them with one of the sentiments.  The coffee cups just didn't fit, so I gave them the ax!

STAMPS: Ornate Leaves (Simon Says Stamp).
PAPER: Vintage Cream (PTI), Not Quite Navy (SU).
INK: Faded Jeans, Fossilized Amber, Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick - distress oxide inks by Ranger.
MISC: Oval punches by SU; Wonky Stitched Rectangle die by Lil' Inker Designs. 

Our guest designer in the spotlight this week is Kelly Lunceford of Flutter by Atomic butterfly.  Be sure to stop by her blog and say hello.  Now it's your turn to get inspired and play along!
