Oh Randy, My Little Flower!

Friday, April 30, 2010

Are you as happy as I am that in just a few short hours the weekend will be here?? I'm sooo looking forward to a quiet weekend at home, without any chores to do...in a Walgreen's world maybe! lol In reality, I have piles of laundry to do and a house that needs a total overhaul! Oh well, at least the sun will be out and shining down this weekend!

Today's Farm Fresh Friday challenge is an inspiration one. It's an image of a medieval/gothic looking bedroom, but for a better idea of what it looks like, you can hop on over to the TGF blog to check it out.

Now with inspiration challenges, you can use any element of the picture you like. It can be as obvious as the main focus of the image, or it could just be the feeling the image creates. I chose to go with the overall color theme of the bedroom for my card.

And since this was an medieval looking room, I thought TGF's Randy Flower digi stamp worked best with these colors. Doesn't he look all dapper looking in his top hat? Perhaps he's getting all dudded up to take Miss Ivy out to dinner?? I kept everything pretty simple this week since I think I just about overloaded myself with all the layers I've done on cards recently! And Randy as a lot going on, detail wise anyway, so it was probably a good thing to keep it simple. I added some fun zigzag stitching and some random adhesive rhinestones (just like Amy Young does on her yummy cards!)

If you're still a bit stumped for ideas, definitely check out what the Farmers did for this challenge:
