Inspired Baby Card...

~ If you ask me where I get my creative inspiration, you better be prepared for a long answer!! It comes from sources galore!! Sometimes it's a magazine article, sometimes from a link sent through one of the Yahoo groups to which I belong, sometimes it's a colorful napkin, and sometimes, it's just the stuff I have lying around! Recently, however, I've been inspired by challenges posted by others on their blogs, swapping sites, etc.

~ For this project, I was inspired by the sketch challenge #28 on Papertake Weekly, a new & exciting blog I just discovered. I've also been seeing great projects using paint chips, so I challenged myself to add one to this project. In addition, I used my Klic-N-Kut and wonderful cutting files designed by Jan Bryson of Sam & Hailey Designs. Don't you just love the adorable whale, ribbon buckle, and scalloped mats?! I am excited about how this baby card and matching envie turned out...and about my new source of creative inspiration!!!
