Power and Spark Challenge August

Wow, when they took off the lid on this Power and Spark inspiration was a doozer.  I really had to think about this one.  But I finally got something that I want to share with you. 

We are to make a project that is inspired by a favorite corner in your home.   It did not take long to know what corner that I wanted to do, but it was hard to find a stamp to convey it. I will let you be the judge on this one. 
Here is a corner of our family room where you will find us every fall Sunday watching Football.  
Go Packers!  Oops, I am digressing again. Was I yelling?  Sorry!  
Here is that corner. 

I decided to be inspired by the soothing colors of the wall, 
 white roses and the plate and candle.  
Here is my card 
That gray-blue was hard to copy, but I got close. 
Charcoal Brown card stock from GKD
Flower Bomb from Power Poppy a digital stamp
Frantic Stamper stitched rectangles die
Die-Namics Hello die
Copic marker and white Prismacolor pencil
Wink of Stella 
Partial die cutting with a Spellbinder scalloped circle die, then I fussy cut the rest of the image. 

Hope that you like this, I am pretty Ok with it.  It will be entered in the Power and Spark Challenge for August. 
Thanks for stopping by, I do appreciate your comments!
