More Color Inspiration

I'm not just inspired by the color challenges that I participate in each week, I also find my own color inspiration out and about, or right here in the house. From the moment I first saw this outfit for Elise (a gift from an old neighbor), I knew I had to make a card with these colors. I wouldn't have put the colors together myself, but they look so fresh.

I finally got around to making a card last week when I was playing with my Circle Scissor Plus.

Here's a close-up to show the flowers in better detail:

I am so happy with the way this card turned out. It's the card version of her pants, don't you think!? I even managed to work in the polka dot cuff!

Very cute picture of Elise! And a very beautiful card! Sophie has the same exact outfit, but she is almost outgrown it.
