Good Monday morning, everyone! It's time for PTI's April 2016 Blog Hop. I don't know about you all, but this month's inspiration photo wasn't one of my favorites, but that's what is fun about art, including card making, we are all inspired by different things. It was hard to come up with an idea. It took me until Saturday to figure out what I wanted to do. I'm happy with the completed card. It did come out like I envisioned it.
This painting reminded me of the 70's. My mom had brown appliances, one aunt had Avocado Green appliances and another aunt had a red/orange shag carpet in her living room or the rec room that was in the basement. I don't remember which room. When Al and I moved into our house in 1987, about 6 months after we were married, we bought a well-used refrigerator and stove in Harvest Gold and in that deal for $150.00, we also got a white washer/dryer set, too. The stove didn't last too long, neither did the washer & dryer, but that fridge wouldn't die!! I had to beg for a new one and finally got a stainless steel french door fridge back in 2007. The fridge did die as soon as we moved it into the garage, though. I'm not too anxious to bring these colors back anytime soon.

I lightly sponged the white card stock with Crumb Cake ink. I did think the flower I used from the Friendly Flower set screamed 70's to me. When I showed my finished card to Al, he asked me if I was trying to bring back the 70's. He made my day. He got what I was going for and he hadn't even seen the inspiration picture at that time.
Thank you so much for stopping by, I love it when you do. Happy blog hopping! I can't wait to see what everyone else came up with. Have a great week!
