Great Swaps Girls Inspiration Challenge

I had a few minutes yesterday do play along with the Great Swaps Girls Inspiration Challenge.  Those are some seriously talented girls, I tell 'ya!  Here's what the inspiration piece looked like:
Cute, huh?  Well, I loved the green stripes and dots with a tiny splash of pink, so here's my taken on it:
I actually tried really hard to get the ballet blue color in there, but I just wasn't feelin' the love, if you know what I mean.  I was happy with how it turned out, although it was much simpler than the ideas I had in my head.  I'm also working on an inspiration challenge of my own.  I saw this picture in the latest Pottery Barn catalog:
There was something about the orange and white diamond pattern and the red diamond pattern with the orange in the middle.  I just couldn't get them out of my mind and kept thinking about how I could re-create those with stamps.  I don't have my card done yet, so check back.  I'm hoping to finish it tonight and post here tonight or tomorrow.  

Mike and I had a nice anniversary dinner on Saturday.  We went to the Cheesecake Factory for dinner.  It wasn't my first choice, but someone gave us a gift card for CF for Christmas and we still hadn't used it!! *gasp*  We just don't get out much. *sigh*  Then we went to a movie.  We saw Expelled.  It was good.  You should go see it.  Really.  Oh, and, I almost forgot . . . my honey got me this.  And I immediately made this.  Although I can see now that I was foolish and I should have made THIS!  What was I thinking??  Well, that gives me something to do tomorrow, right? *wink*  

Ok, my tiny man is begging for a bath.  Gotta run.  Tah~

ETA:  Sorry.  I forgot the recipe for this one.  Stamps:  Three Thoughts Simply Sent kit; Paper, Wild Wasabi DSP, Wasabi and Whisper White CS; Ink: Stazon Jet Black; Accessories: Fairy Tale Ribbon Originals, Flower Fusion Felt Flower, White Brad.
