Junk Mail Inspiration

Inspiration can come from anywhere... and this week it came in the mail! 

Fall for New Color
Crate & Barrel inspiration photo

When I saw the colors in my latest Crate & Barrel catalog, I instantly wanted to stamp something using the same colors.  Maybe other stampers get that feeling, too, some times...?? 
I wanted to make something clean and modern and came up with this:

I used Summer Starfruit and Basic Gray Stampin' Up! inks and SU! stamps, the sentiment from Pursuit of Happiness and Chamomile wheel.  Short on other gray SU! supplies, I used Paper Trey Ink Smokey Shadow cardstock and ribbon, along with SU!'s Summer Starfruit & Whisper White cardstock.

How will you be inspired this week?  If you are low on mojo, don't forget to check your mail!
Happy stamping everyone.
