Color Inspiration




Well, I had a few minutes alone in the house for myself this morning and my head was so swimming with ideas of what to make that I couldn't seem to decide on anything, so I decided to take a leap and do my first "Kwernerdesignblog Color Inspiration". So this card was made taking inspiration from the colors in the dress in Kristina's graphic. The dress had me thinking about fabric and then I got on a quilting tangent which made me think of a couple of different friends - so here's my quilted friend card with ribbon and button embellishments... (I mean really, if you're me, you can't think quilting or fabric without thinking buttons). I know I've seem some much prettier cards for this challenge, but it was cathartic for me to just go with my inspiration and not overanalyze it or try to get it perfect, you know?!
