Finding inspiration

Where oh where do you find ideas for color combinations? Look around you - they are everywhere! For example while I was at Michaels the other day I found these cool ribbons

Which became these cards

The one on the left uses Cool Caribbean, Cranberry Crisp and Marigold Morning. The one on the right uses Old Olive, Creamy Caramel and Close to Cocoa.

Then I needed a card for Machelle's gift and as I was looking at the gift bag

and came up with this card

which uses apricot appeal, pixie pink, close to cocoa and bashful blue.

So next time you need inspiration - look around you - you might be surprised what you can come up with!

Great job on these creations! I just do whatever challenge I find on the net from time to time...I waste far too many brain cells on childrearing to think of anything myself!
