Hello {Pinspire Me}

Well hello weekend!

This past week I was very much inspired by the Pinspire Me Monday post over at Paper Issues. Corri found a gorgeous swatch of color goodness on Pinterest. Click HERE to go see the post and some examples by the design team.

Here is the card I made, along with some design notes:

I've really loved painted backgrounds lately. And I wanted to play too. So, I used a gelato, mixed with water, and spread it around with my fingers. After letting it dry, I layered on some strips of paper. Love the September Skies collection by Heidi Swapp. It really does work well with the color swatch.

While I did play with paint, I still managed to keep my card clean and simple. Just a few strips of paper to add more color and pattern, and some simple wood embellishments.

You can find all this product in the Paper Issues Store! Make sure to use code melissa20 to save yourself 20%! Woohoo!

Thanks for swinging by today. Have a wonderful weekend.
