One Scrappy Card

Hey! It's Tuesday and that means it's time for another super fun inspiration challenge from Beate...BIC15. I really love these challenges. I love how there are so many things that can get your creative juices flowing.

Here's this weeks inspiration piece taken from a JCrew ad....This is such a pretty dress. It seems so fun and festive but the colors seem so calm to me. I love the splash of orange in the midst of the grey, blue and greens. I chose to work with the colors from this piece and see where they took me.

Where was that you ask? Ok...I'll ask for you...right to my scrap paper pile!....

Oh, I finally figured out how to turn the flash off on my camera. Just a little tidbit of info. I used some of my scraps to make this card. I would be impressed if the pile of scraps wasn't as big as it is and if I did this on more of a regular basis! I either need to chuck them or strive to use them more often!

Well that's it for me. Be sure and check out the rest of Beate's team. They are always making the cutest cards! Charmaine, Danielle, Silke, Susan...Dawn is still on vacation...lucky girl! Hope she's having a great time!

I hope you all have a fantabulous day! I'm going to be playing catch up around here. You would think that since we were home for this holiday weekend there wouldn't be much to do. Somehow I am really behind on everything! I'm hoping that everyone cooperates and then I will be all caught up!

Take care and I will post you soon! :)

I love the muted colours you've used for this card! I'm still trying to use my scraps (and will probably continue to do so for the next 20 years - yes I have that many :))

I hope you are managing to catch up xx
