colour inspiration

Yesterday, my son came home with a new pair of skate shoes he had bought with money made working at his part time job. My eyes bugged open when I spotted the shopping bag that the shoes had come in - what a fabulous colour combo for a card I thought. After begging for the bag, I ran down to my scrapping room and got to work.
My point is this - when you are lacking inspiration - look around your world - at shopping bags, store logos, cereal boxes,even SHOES! Retailers spend big bucks to have someone come up with great colours to catch your eye as a consumer.
Take advantage and use their ideas !
My card is using colours taken directly off the shopping bag from the shoe store -
vintage violet, pumpkin pie and whisper white! Take a look around your world for inspiration - I think you will be amazed at how easy it is.

Stay tuned for more inspiration!
