It's fun to take inspiration from unlikely places...a magazine ad, the fabric design on a favorite dress, etc. I found my inspiration for my card from a rug in the Home Decorators Collection catalog. I used the direct to paper technique using Mellow Moss as my base and then randomly hitting it with Old Olive, Whisper White and Garden Green ink pads. Over that I stamped the swirls from Season of Joy in Whisper White, Always Artichoke and gold.
