This card was actually inspired by a dog sweater. Yep, a doggie. I was taking a walk in the park the other day and passed a woman walking her small dog dressed in a cute little multi-colored sweater. I only got a glance but I saw some red and lighter shades of blue in the narrow stripes of the sweater. I thought those colors would make a great background for a card. (I really wanted to see the sweater closer but resisted the urge to turn around a follow a dog.)
I raided my scrap cardstock bin which is getting so full the lid won't close. Also, getting a workout were several pairs of decorative scissors I hardly ever use. The chipboard snowflake is from Stampin' Up! and is sponged in white craft ink.
Look around. Apparently, you can find inspiration anywhere.
