Timeless Tuesday on Wednesday...late again

My pick from the inspirational choices at Timeless Tuesday.

Well you guessed it...I'm a day late and a dollar short ( vacations can be costly), but I'm here to join in on the challenge to be inspired. I was inspired to try and come as close as possible to my choice and copy as much as possible so you knew I was really paying attention and trying. See the damask like look on my card as it mimicks the above photo and then I used some darker blue cardstock to mimick the chair color ( I'm a bit off color wise but as I said I'm trying.) then I copied the bed-head and used an ivory color with my Nestie # whatever and stamped my flowers and believe it or not...they are a Narcissus rather then a daffodil as I'm sure the designer of this flower wanted them to be, but I said to heck with it and made them my own. Did you know that the daffodil is a Chinese sacred lily??? Me neither but that's what I've been told. Anyway the Narcissus is usually white with a yellow/orange center so that's what I did here. Simple card with some embossing in white using the Flourishes Lace Edge set and my flowers are from the ever popular ( with me) calendar set, little phrase is from tag a line. Add a bit of ribbon, slap it all together and fini.
Happy week everyone and since I've been away awhile I won't use the colored eggs in the fridge since I know I didn't dye any yet. Better safe then sorry.
