The theme for the Clean and Simple class today was to use a stamp in an alternate way, however yesterday's theme of Inspiration snuck back into my card making today. One of the great things about my job as an Architect is that I have a library full of fun stuff - carpet, fabric, paint, wall covering, tiles, etc. The upholstery fabric is especially inspiring to me. I often order sample of fabric I like just because I like it and I keep it on my desk. Sometimes it sparks a color scheme for a client and many times it inspires a card! Today I was looking for a stamp and came across a fabric I took home thinking I would cut out the flowers for a card or scrapbook page and then totally forgot about it. I decided to use it today because it reminded me a little bit of one of the cards that was shown in the clean and simple cards. So I lifted that layout, but used this fabric for my inspiration. This is the fabric...
and this is the card I came up with...
