Now I don't speak french, but I am falling in love with the new Dreams du Jour stamp set that will be available on Aug 11th. I have yet to use it as I had imagined when I first saw the set but have actually been using it on cards.
I came across a new blog (to me anyways) and found lots of inspiration. The first post was a color inspiration challenge. Kristina Werner had found this beautiful dress and chose the colors out of it for a challenge.
I hardly ever use Sage Shadow and would not have ever come up with this color combo on my own. Isn't the dress just absolutely lovely?
Here is what I came up with. This card started out as so much more, with many more elements and layers but I ended up ripping it apart and starting over. I ended up ruining the little butterfly that I spent so much time watercoloring and cutting out which was sad, but, I really like the simplicity of the card and the sentiment (which is mounted with dimensionals) says it all.
