Color Inspiration

I am going to have to brag on my self a little bit today!! Believe it or not, I actually created an ORIGINAL card today for Kristina's Color Challenge!!! I know, right? I was surprised that I like this combo as much as I do, but when I got out a piece of Sage Shadow paper, I just KNEW I wanted to use the Floral BG and Whisper White Craft Ink for the base of my card. I actually heard my Dreams du Jour stamp set groan from pure exhaustion when I inked it up again for this project. I think that set might be my all-time favorite!! So this card just came together naturally! I've also been stamping with white craft ink on ribbon lately, and I like that, too! These challenges are so great because they really get those creative juices flowing and, if you're like me, you need all the inspiration you can get. Well, I'm off to get ready for my "geek date" tonight! Chris and I are going to see the 25th anniversary showing of "War Games!" I just love that movie and it's on TBS all the time, but it's been 25 years since I've seen it on the big screen. I CANNOT BELIEVE I am old enough to have seen a movie 25 years ago that I remember so vividly!! **sigh**
