Picture Perfect Challege

Hi there!
Hope your week is going well!
Today I am sharing the card inspired by Paper Smooches SPARKS Picture Perfect Challenge

Aww, don't I wish I had a cool bedroom like this when I was growing up!
Here is my take...

The first thing that my eyes went to was the blue chevron stripes on the ottoman. I found this DSP from the I am Me pack. I liked that washed out look!
I embossed vellum for the very first time (I wanted the blue coming through the vellum), I had no idea it would destroy it!! I had to put pieces of scotch tape to keep it in one piece! lol 

Since I had destroyed my vellum (Ha Ha), I decided to sew it on the base card so it wouldn't fall apart on me later! I repeated the chevron with my stitches. 
The little bird house is from the same set, that is my house from the inspirational photo. Added a little heart with the accent color in the photo as well. 

I thought I was done after adhering my lovely sentiment, but that little birdie was kind of staring at me so there she is...;-)
It is quite simple, but I am loving this card a lot!

My notes...

Stamp: Gently Seasoned Two (Paper Smooches)
Paper: Pool Party, Whisper White, Daffodil Delight, I am Me DSP  (Retired)
