ATSM Photo Inspiration

It's time for another challenge at ATSM and this week it's a photo inspiration! 
I wish I had a window or a chair stamp but I don't :( so I opted to use the colors along with the flowers. I also used the sketch at retro sketches.
I love this sketch and as soon as I saw those blotchies I knew I had to pull out my blotchy stamp from my My Paper Pumpkin kit, Hey There.
I used our new Baked Brown Sugar cardstock for my card base and sponged Soft Suede ink on the woodgrain paper to darken it up a bit.  I bent the corner down on purpose just to add a little bit of character. When I showed it to Janae (8), I thought she would say something about it and she did!  She said "I love the bent corner!"  And her I figured she would think it was a mistake. :)
Stamp Set: Field Flowers, Hey There
Cardstock: Baked Brown Sugar, Whisper White
Ink: Daffodil Delight, Crushed Curry, Gumball Green, Soft Suede
Tools: Sponge
Accessories: Natural Composition DSP, Dimensionals
