The Perfect Pair

There were several things I wanted to get accomplished today. Making this card was NOT one of them. High on my list was cleaning off my craft desk. Imagine if you will a very nice desk with room for all manner of things, then imagine all manner of things on top of that desk. Kind of looks like Michael's, Joanne's and Hobby Lobby dropped off a boat load of craft goods on top of it. I had the idea of cleaning it off and then making some cards. DETOUR!!!
When I started to move some things around I found this stamp set, Chair-Ished from PaperTrey Ink, sitting there. I got it a week or so ago and set it aside to play with later. Well later came today.
I needed to make an anniversary card for a young couple we know and I thought this set would make a really cute card. I went up on the the PaperTrey site and looked for some inspiration. I found it in the gallery in Melissa Phillips gallery. I didn't copy hers exactly but it really inspired me to make mine. This card uses several techniques that I don't often do (too much finagalling) . I paper pieced the chairs, masked them off to stamp the rug, used several layers, then I used some of the DP to computer generate the sentiment. All the DP is from DCWV Linen Closet. I had the card photographed and already to upload when I realized I had forgotten to put the pearls on, oops.
Well I hope you like it and thanks for stopping by.
