Chair-ish Today

I'm bringing you another 'just because' card that I made weeks ago.  I LOVE this Damask Chair set by Stampendous, which is new to me (at a discount from Michael's; even better!).


Adding some Glossy Accents to the fabric portions of the chair made them really pop.  It reminds me of vinyl coverings on upholstered seating.  I've never been a fan of that practice, but to each his own!


Today I edited the photos of my craft studio.  There are quite a few!  When I get my post ready, be warned that it's going to be a long one.  I want to give you a proper tour!  :-)

Have a wonderful day,

Awesome, awesome, awesome! What a wonderful card. The chair has such depth, it looks as if it's coming off the card and inviting you to plop right down in it.
