Funky Duffle

This week's inspiration challenge came from the fun clothing of Boden USA. We could choose anything from their site, so I headed to the girls' clothing section and found this cute winter coat.

I used the colors as my starting point. I double punched snowflakes in two shades of pink, then layered them and topped them with clear Dew Drops. I chose the buckle ribbon slider to fit with the clothing theme, and the sentiment is something I could picture this girl saying.

All in all, I think this is a fun card that captures the playfulness of the photo and the company itself.

Stamps: Cold Play (SU)
Paper: Tempting Turquoise, Kiwi Kiss, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose
Ink: Kiwi Kiss
Accessories: Martha Stewart snowflake punch, Dew Drops, ribbon (Michael's), Pewter Hodgepodge Hardware

OOOh, neato. We are starting to get scary. I also chose girl's outerwear and it also involved green. I also used some Hodgepodge Hardware with ribbon. Quite frankly, I have goosebumps. Maybe I am your craft doppelganger.

With this said, I LOVE your card.
