Inspiration really is everywhere

I found some cute tissue paper at Target for a birthday party my husband and I went to last week. As I took a look at the paper I realized that it would make a really cute card. So I took the color inspiration and the circle motif from the tissue paper and came up with this card. I think that it would be a really fun party invite. I really liked how it turned out and I used all Bold Bright colors and for a girl who usually goes for more earthy or subtle tones that is different for me. Where do you find inspiration for your cards?

Too cool! You really have to love inspiration-those are some colors I would have never put together, but they look awesome together! Such a groovy card! :-)

Love this! I used to use Bold Brights all the time, but I've gotten away from them. This is so fun! Thanks for the award.

Great color combination and a happy layout (is there such a thing?). Have fun in France.

I really like this card! It's so fun! I love your circle layers on your greeting.

I've been looking for color inspiration, too. Just this month I've made two cards from colors that I loved on a skirt in a magazine.
