Unmentionable Inspiration


Can anyone guess where the inspiration for this card came from? Anyone at all? Would you believe, a pair of underwear? Seriously! I was at Gymboree the other day and there were some shelves of underwear piled up and this is what I saw. I thought it would make a cute and super simple Halloween card. Of course, the A Muse witch is so much cuter than the one on the underwear ;) I changed the colors to a more subdued orange and added yellow so that it would compliment the ribbon that I had (it is so beautiful but I have no idea who makes it!). I think it is truly an adorable card, not spooky, just fun. I am starting to get into the Halloween-fun mood, so I will be pulling out those images and working on some more fun things to share!

card info: image and sentiment by A Muse, paper by Die Cuts with a View and my supply, scallop scissors, ribbon ?, Prismacolor marker-sunburst yellow, Copic marker-baby skin pink, Signo silver pen.

Elena,
Only you could find inspiration in a pile of drawers.
