SCS INSPIRATION CHALLENGE 93 - DINNERWARE

Today's SCS Inspiration Challenge 93 involved getting your inspiration from this dinnerware set from Pier One (my fav. store!). Other than that, there were no rules! I picked up on the colors of Taken With Teal, Old Olive, Basic Black and Whisper White. The dinnerware set had a retro/modern feel to it, and the Big Pieces and Little Pieces stamp sets were probably the most modern and retro style of stamp set I own. I went to the SCS Big Pieces gallery (here) for some inspiration, and ended up CASEing this card from allenjeni. I changed only a few things: a) my card is square 5 1/4" x 5 1/4", b) the obvious color scheme from the inspiration pieces, and c) the sentiment from All Holidays. The black circle with the teal flower inside is black CS punched out with the 3/4" circle punch, and the teal flower is stamped on whisper white, punched with the 1/2" circle punch, then popped up on a dimensional.
