Rachel's Kitchen in the Kitchen

Here it is Monday again and time for Kitchen Sink Crew Challenge #2. Today Angela is hosting our challenge and has selected this photograph by Rachel Denbow of her amazing kitchen for us to use as inspiration! I fell in love with the awesome colors and fifties flair!

Check out Rachel's blog Bling on my Sewing Machine to see more of her fabulous work. What a talented artist!! You can see her Happy*Kitchen here in her remarkable flickr gallery.

As you can see I created my card today using the beautiful colors I saw in Rachel's kitchen. I was also inspired by the pegboard and solid images on the glasses. They remind me so much of the jelly glasses my mother collected when I was a child in the fifties!
