{Create; Inspiration will find you.}


To "Create", isn't that what card making is all about? I LOVE the sentiment featured on my card today. There are so many ways to be inspired - pictures, colors, the list could go on and on! What inspires you? Well, my inspiration for today's card came from this picture that is the current Moxie Fab World Blog Tuesday Trigger .
I know I always say this but I LOVED working on this card! I knew I wanted my card to feature several different shades of red, and maroon, and I have a ribbon jar full of ribbon scraps that I am so glad I saved! I wanted my card to have lots of color, and texture, and I had the perfect ribbons to achieve the look I was going for. I hand twirled the paper rose (my very first time to try it) and added the SU Sweet Pea stitched leaf. The beautiful shade of red that I used for the card stock base is Stampin' Up! new color "Cherry Cobbler". I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder on the crumb cake card stock. If you are wondering why I have been posting so many cards lately I am kind of immobile at the moment. I am having major sciatic pain due to my pregnancy and I have a really hard time walking. Thank goodness my Dad had a pair of crutches I could borrow!
Anyways, there is still plenty of time to play along with the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger Card Challenge! Thank you for visiting my blog today!
