Color Inspiration #44 AND CPS 105
Wow! I'm having so much fun making cards and getting amazing ideas from all of the blogs I have subscribed to in the last two weeks. I could spend 24/7 on my laptop just going from blog to blog looking at all of the amazing talent out there. I guess I'm not really alone in my madness after all.
Well, today's card comes from the color challenge at Kristina Werner's blog, who I found from the Year in Cards class at Two Peas in a Bucket. I love her style! And for the inspiration to lay it out, I found Card Positioning Systems, another place where I'm going to get ideas when my own brain won't function.
I did the very best I could to match the colors from the color challenge just by using my stash. If you've been in my room, you'll know that I've got drawers, and drawers, and drawers of cardstock. As much as I'm dying to try some of the Stampin' Up! paper, I'm going to try and hold off on buying anymore until I really need it. I also had this beautiful Basic Grey paper from the Bittersweet collection that I haven't had the heart to cut up yet and it seemed to work just perfectly with the colors. I'm not terribly thrilled with the center stamp, or my work on the bow, but I do like the sentiment and needed a card of this type anyway.
So, here it is! If you've stopped by, please leave a comment. Feedback is really valued here and I'd love suggestions from more experienced cardmakers. I'm beginning to get some mojo working and love to learn new things!
