Inkspiration Inspiration Challenge #17

Today's card is for Makeesha's Inkspiration Challenge and we are up to 'Inspiration'.  I mostly find these ones a challenge.  Check out this picture:
Here is my creation:
I found the inspiration picture peaceful and elegant, so I've created my card in that way.
I've started off with a base card in White, then layered some Kraft cardstock and pattern paper from Urban Oasis DP by Stampin'Up.
The only stamping is the scripture verse - the Devoted stamps set by Unity Stamps.  I've added some lace and a button as my embellishments.
Oh, the the label is actually stamped too.  It's a set from 7gypsies.  I've stamped it onto some of the same DP and the cut it out.  Here's a closer look:

Product used:
Stamps: Devoted (Unity Stamps), Labels (7gypsies)
Cardstock: White, Kraft, DP Urban Oasis
Ink: Sahara Sand, Basic Grey
Others: Distressing tool, button, lace, dimensionals

I hope you like it.  I'm pleased with the result, even though it doesn't have alot of the inspiration in it. 
If you'd like to join in with the challenge this week, link your creation at Makeesha's website!
Be sure to check out the fabulous work from her Design Team - I'm sure their creations will be great!

I look forward to seeing what you all come up with.  Til next time..

You did a FANTASTIC job interpreting the piece! The neutral colours look fantastic and so does that lacy border you've added!
