Hows about a little SUO?

Hi everyone!!! Happy Saturday!!!

Here is my card for today's Inspiration Challenge on SCS, IC180, Country Living Home Office!!! What a GORGEOUS inspiration room!!! I wish I had an office that looks like that!!!!

My card is Stampin' Up! only!!! I have SO much SU! that I never have time to use, and I knew I wanted to use Thoughts & Prayers for my card today! I LOVE this set!! I inked up the flowers with Elegant Eggplant and the stems with Old Olive Stampin' Write Markers and stamped the image onto Whisper White Cardstock.

I went with a Whisper White, Elegant Eggplant and Rose Red combo, which are not colors I would normally gravitate towards, but I really love together!! The Elegant Eggplant and Rose Red panels were textured with the Harlequin Texturz Background. I LOVE these backgrounds...I hope we get some more in the new catty!!!

My sentiment is from Sweet Serendipity and I stamped it onto Rose Red Cardstock with Elegant Eggplant ink and punched it with my Designer Label Punch. I then framed it with some Styled Silver Hodgepodge Hardware and used two Ice Circle Rhinestone Brads to attach it and add some bling. I finished off my card with some Whisper White Satin Ribbon (from the mini...I am totally ordering TONS of this before the mini ends!!), and of course, some piercing!!!

Chris and I took Meredith to The Bronx Zoo today and we had SO much fun! Here is a picture of Meredith and I, and one of a Polar Bear, which was one of the most magnificent animals at the Zoo!! Chris took some AMAZING pictures of the animals...perhaps he missed his calling? LOL!!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
