Inspired by All the Little Things #34

I've had this gorgeous inspiration photo from Inspired by All the Little Things sitting on my desk for days... since my 12 Kits compadre is the guest designer, it seems fitting I enter a card ... congrats, Joyce!

Here is the loveliness I'm referring to:

There is just something so elegant about the colors in the photo.  Since I've posted photos of my own Christmas display in our new home, I couldn't resist 'building' that buffet!  The words escaped me - bet you never thought I'd say that!
 
Mama Elephant Peek-a-frame window - twice!  from wood-grain paper that Bobby gave me,
but I blended a bit of Crumb Cake ink onto-
really old Fancy Pants paper-even older Queen & Co. pearls-
Die-namics wreath
 
I hope you all are staying inside, crafting 'til your hearts are content!   Your visits warm my heart ... who cares if it's cold outside!
 
=]  Michele
 
 So happy to be honored by Tracey at
Inspired by All the Little Things!!!

Well leave it to you to make the most gorgeous card for this inspiration! You chalkboard is absolutely amazing. I am trying to figure if you use patterned paper or if you have a new embossing technique to share with me. You do neutrals so well my friend. Thank you so much for sharing with us at All the Little Things this week!

Beautiful "building"! Love your distress wood-look with crumb cake all over it, those precious red pearls and sophisticated wreath!

Lisa said...

Beautiful!

You have no idea how much I love this card.
I have a thing about tags (as you know)... but door or window cards also make me very happy.
I know not why, but they do.
Absolutely gorgeous in every way. X

Swoon.....I think this is just darling! That wood paper is amazing, but that chalkboard behind it...LOOOOOVE it! What a sweet confection you've shared today!

Jeanne said...

Wow! Michele! Such a lovely card. I really like the window/hutch idea with the paper/chalkboard behind the panes. The wreath is so pretty hanging there and what a wonderful sentiment, too. So very pretty and cozy! Thanks so much for sharing! I see a bit of your signature grey (gray?), too. :) Hugs!

Birgit said...

Simply stunning!!I want this window decor in my house. ;0)

Bobby said...

I gave you woodgrain paper? If so, why don't I have any? I know I bought some at one time but I sure can't find it. I adore your card, Michele. It looks just like the buffet and that cute wreath with polka dot bow just screams "Michele".

Joyce said...

This is adorable and cozy. I can just see that scene in real life in a warm and cozy home. And, of course, a fantastic sentiment--don't we all wish for all three.

Barb Ghig said...

No, I never thought words would escape you :) I really love your take on this inspiration photo, Michele...Gorgeous color palette and the Peek-a-Frame window is perfect with your wreath and bow! Loving the chalkboard panel, too!
