OK, you know you have it bad for paper crafting when you see a myriad of colors and designs everyday and think to yourself - "Oh I have to remember that combination, design, layout - that would make a great card". A little girl's dress with a brown background and pink and teal flowers at the softball field prompted that phrase in my head. I almost wanted to take a picture of her dress so I would remember the combination but thought that would look "stalkerish". It may have also had orange flowers - if only I had taken the picture - mmmm no, bad idea.
Here is the card that the dress translated into. I wanted something very feminine and my daughter needs thank you cards - this is the end result. I am going to make more cards using this color combo but I am also going to include orange (ah, the picture could have verified the orange). Since she needs quite a few, I am going to use flower punches and try for a more contemporary look and simpler card. Hopefully I will get that posted tomorrow.
I think I am going to have to put a notepad in my purse for future run ins with inspiration so I don't get arrested:)
