Flourishes Timeless Tuesday: Inspiration Challenge

"It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC20)! This week Betty Wright is our host. She is challenging us to get inspired from Kimberly Poloson at AllPosters.com. Search through the many posters to find an inspiration piece. As with all inspiration pieces, there may be one or two things in the photo that inspires you whether it is an, image, element, layout, or color scheme, or you may want to recreate the whole look. There are so many wonderful ones to choose from you will probably want to play several times. Make sure you include a link in your write up as to which one you chose and why. We would love to see what you create!!!"
Here are the cards created by the inspired team members:
Betty Wright
Cindy Haffner
Dee Jackson
Silke Ledlow
Connie McCotter-Guest designer

My inspiration piece can be found HERE. It was tough to choose one poster! To re-create the damask, I used the only stamp that could work, and it was from the set, Autumn Flourishes. It worked well and unless you look really closely, you might not even know that it is a fall stamp. Inspiration pieces really push you to use your stash and to look at your supplies differently. It forces you to use something close and very often make a happy discovery!!
I also think the leaf motif on it coordinated with the Topiary stamp. The sentiment is from Life, Love, Lemons. A score line was added, along with some Distressing Ink in Old Page.
thanks a million for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps-Flourishes (Autumn Flourishes, Life Love Lemons, diy Topiary)
Ink-Memento (Tuxedo Black), Distressing Ink (Old Page Ranger/Tim Holtz)
Cardstock-Papertrey Ink (True Black, Stamper's Select White)
Tools-Punch (EK Success Parisianne), Scor Pal
