Saturday's Inspiration Challenge

Do you ever have a day where it is astoundingly obvious that you should be doing something else? Before I went to work this morning, (by the way, thank you all for the well wishes, my feet are better today, and I love my job) I checked out the Inspiration challengeover on SCS. It was to make a card around a dress you have seen in a movie. The whole time I was at work, and even during lunch with my DH, I tried to think of a dress that I loved from a movie. All I could think of were big frilly dresses. I thought about dresses from Pride and Prejudice, Ever After, Pirates of the Caribbean, you know, frilly dresses.( oh how I would have loved to live then)!! What’s so funny about this, if you know anything about me, I am NOT a frilly person, I just think they are beautiful. So I decided after lunch to Google some of my favorite movies to see if I could find one in particular that inspired me. Some how I ended up with something from Gone With The Wind. I was inspired by the colors and the pattern on the dress. Of course that was when I started, and now, this is where I am. Not even close at all!!LOL!! Everything that I tried to do, ended badly. I finally got this thrown together, and I am pleased with it, but not completely. That is not to say that it is a bad card, because it isn’t, but it isn’t what I intended, so I have a hard time accepting it. Do you know what I mean? I was gonna write an explanation for this card, but I really don’t think it needs one, so here it is, in all it’s glory!! Now, I am off to take a nap, or clean, I can’t decide( but I definitely think the nap is gonna win)! I leave you with a package of joy that I received in the mail today. My SCS BFF Jodi(kharmagirl) sent this to me, and I was so excited to get it!! It has some yummy Basic Gray Cupcake paper, some Cosmo Cricket ribbon, flowers, a notebook, tons of Lizzie Anne stamped images and a gorgeous card. Doesn’t she ROCK!!
