Friends and Inspiration

Time again for another Friends of Speedy TV challenge.  Today, we are using an inspiration photo.  I have attached it below so that you can see how my card developed.  I had to with the most obvious aqua color that was present in the picture.  I added the other neutrals I saw in the photo too.  The double scored line that separates my image and my sentiment is derived from the panels and molding featured in the photo.  What I find most obvious is that I chose a window and draperies.  I needed to create a scene outside the window, so I sponged some clouds and added birds in flight.
Here is the photo we used for today's challenge.







Here is the stamp set that is offered up by Mark's Finest Papers for one lucky participant in this week's challenge.  It's called In My Den and I think I could just as easily used the wing backed chair to convey the relaxed state of the photo.
Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope to see your card linked up in the gallery on Speedy TV!
