Color Inspiration

The Challenge this week at Dutch Dare is
using one of these beautiful Color Inspirations.
Please join us this week!

I had help with the design of this card. I was having
serious Mojo issues and nothing was working. I have a gazillion unused Nestie shapes trying to make something work. I went to my favorite list hoping to find some inspiration and found this beautiful card by Cheryl from She Stamps. It worked perfectly!
Thank You Cheryl! The only problem when I case
a card, is I love everything about it, I case the whole card! (Cheryl's card below)

There you were all worried about this project and look at it! Its fantastic! So you cased a card..its ok! imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.Cheryl's a sweetheart I'm sure she won't mind. We all need inspiration from eachother or I think we all would have dried up years ago!
Really lovely, Stacey!

Maybe it's something about the weather this week. LOL. I had problems with my card, too. My mind just went blank after I cut my base out. You did a beautiful card, and your colors and embellishments are awesome. I'm not sure if I saw Crafty Creations on your challenges, but their challenge is 3++ dies or more. I think you qualify. Hugs, dj

Really nice card Stacey, I think it's just perfect for a sympathy card, they are sometimes hard to do. The frame and pearls are lovely.
Bye for now,
