Inspiration is everywhere

Recently at work, one of my coworkers work the most beautiful scarf.  the light colored scarf with bits of pastel and bright pink was so eye catching and looked lovely on her.  I decided then and there that I would model a card after I did. :)

Here is the card I made.  I took a plain base color and distressed with some brown around the edges. I used my Lawn Fawn Interlocking Backdrops to create my chevron look colored with markers. Though there was no gold on the scarf, I thought adding some was a nice accent color to go with the pink and so I made two tassles, one gold and one white with a bit of pink and anchored them with a bright pink button.  The sentiment is from Avery Elle.

I just sent this to a friend for her birthday and I hope she liked it!

Before you go, I am entering this into:

Thanks for stopping by!

This is absolutely stunning!!! I love the way you've managed to pull in so many colours and elements yet the card looks so cohesive and everything is so perfectly placed - very much an accomplishment! Love the addition of the tassels! Thanks so much for playing to find a Cure For The Monday Blues!
