I just love this pretty color combination: white, grey, blue, yellow, black–one of my favorite! I was inspired by the open, whimsical pattern, and tried to capture that whimsical collage on my card. Would you believe my first attempt was just too rigid? I had all these blooms and fronds on it, and yet, it felt tight and constrained. So I scrapped the whole project and challenged myself to try a whole new direction. Sometimes, you have to be guided by the mood of the inspiration photo as much as the design.

Thanks for joining me today!
