Color Inspiration for Card Makers

Happy Wednesday! Finally I am allowed to share a card I made for the fabulous Paper Crafts Special Issue Color Inspiration for Card Makers. It has been the hardest submissions call for me ever. I don't know how often I digged through my supplies to find matching product for the color swatches - and the little color samples prepared by Paper Crafts to make sure every Designer really uses the right colors arrived on my doorstep 2 days before deadline. Not much time to create and check the colors! I was so relieved when I got 5 cards accepted, so it was worth the hard work :) Here is the sample I chose to share with you:


Can you tell I love October Afternoon? That pink typewriter is the cutest. I got my Issue of the magazine yesterday and it is amazing!!! When I flipped through it, my jaw dropped at the sight of the cards the Designers came up with! Beautiful! Be sure to get your issue here - it is a source of wonderful inspiration!!

Have a very happy day and thanks for visiting!

Hugs,
Vanessa

Hallo Vanessa!
Wow - gleich 5 Karten akzeptiert - toll!!!
Früher hatte ich einen viel spießigeren Geschmack - da hätte ich solche Farben u. Muster nie kombiniert - glücklicherweise sind diese Zeiten vorbei, denn wie man an deiner Karte sieht, passt alles wundervoll und ergänzt sich zu einem kleinen KUNSTWERK!!!
Ganz große Klasse!
Ich wünsch dir einen schönen Tag!
Liebe Grüße,
Ulina
