Sprinkles of Happy Thoughts


This is my second post of the day. Please scroll down to see my Friends with Flair/Paper Players card.

I am back with a card for the Runway Inspired Challenge. I have been trying to figure out time to sit down and create a card for this as I was instantly inspired by the fabulous rainbow of colors when this challenge was posted.

Here is what I came up with:
Which was inspired by this dress:
Man did her shoes pop out at me, and I searched and searched till I found a bright green strip in my scrap box....whew! Of all the colors, I wanted to make sure I represented it was the color in her shoes! How fab are they, but yet not something I would ever gravitate to myself in my shoe shopping adventure.
In my creative process I went back and forth if I should use triangles, but in the end I used the stripes in her dress as my focal inspiration for layout. I really like the clean and graphic look to this.

For my card, I cut the border strips from various papers in my scrap pile and adhered them in order of the  Rainbow.  I completed my card by adding my sentiment to the right side of my card front.

That's it till next time! May your days be crafty!
