Klunk...

That's the sound of inspiration hitting. I spotted Kristina's colour inspiration challenge and saw that the deadline was tomorrow at 5PM. Well, that was hardly enough time to wait until tomorrow to make a card, so I found myself making this one tonight. Originally I was going to do some chipboard, but that takes too long. Instead, I traced a bigger flower chipboard shape onto white cardstock, cut it out, applied some black rub-ons, then matted that on black cardstock. I also freehanded some smaller black graphic floral shapes and matted those on white cardstock. I applied some more rub-ons, including the greeting, onto some polka dot patterned paper, added some ribbon, and threw it all on this 3-1/4x6 format card. I like the card because it's a lovely collection of brights that I wouldn't normally throw together. It's also kind of a funky layout. It's really nice when inspiration just hits, you know?

Supplies:
Paper: White, Black, Rose Red DP, Pumpkin Pie
Accessories, etc.: rub-ons (Stampin' Up! SAB ones), pop dots, orchid ribbon, corner rounder
