Hello – I’m tickled pink to be hopping with the Creating Kindness Design Team this month.

The theme for this hop is ‘Colour Inspiration’.  I can’t wait for you to see what inspires all these wonderful crafters.

For me, it’s all about pink in this house.  It’s a 3-1 ratio (4-1 if we’re counting the dog!), with Mr Papercraft being seriously outnumbered.

And girl power around here means pink!

A couple of years ago we transformed one of our bedrooms into a pink paradise and bought new bed linen for the girls.

{I think they like it!}

I had such fun searching for designs that matched the vision in my mind for pretty & pink.  Given the intensity of the walls, I wanted lots of white in there too.

After a long search (and a little luck), I found two gorgeous designs – and it’s one of these beautiful patterns that have inspired my colours & card designs for today.

This is the reverse side which started the colour journey…

From this, I took the three gorgeous bright colours – and these are my inspiration colours for my project…

And this is the front side – which formed the concept & design part of my card…

Although I love the silhouette effect of the gray amongst all the colour, I wanted to bring this design to life.

So, in full colour, this is my card…

When I’ve made this style of card previously (which I love!), I’ve called it a flip-flop card.  I’m not sure if that’s still what crafters are calling it!

It’s a great design that folds out and you write in the middle panel.

The bottom layer is my favourite of this card – handmade DSP using the Happy Birthday Gorgeous stamp set and modelled on the reverse of the quilt cover.

Look at all those fun shapes!

My other favourite part is the bike on the front from the Sheltering Tree stamp set.

I just love how it all comes together and the inspiration from the front of the quilt for the heart balloon posy….

All up this was such a fun card to make – and all because of the bright and vibrant colours.
