WCMD - Mexico

The last card's inspiration comes from Mexico. When I think of Mexico, I think of bright colors & sunshine, which is what I was trying to achieve with this card. The colored tiles I found in my stash that I've had for years - they reminded me of Mexican tiles (but were extremely difficult to work with - glad I used those up!). Thanks for looking!

WDMD - Australia

The inspiration for this card is from Australia - the use of Aboriginal dotted outlines.

WCMD - Japan

Japan was the next country that I used for inspiration. When I think of Japan, I think of cherry blossoms & delicate flowers & silk screens. I used my With Sympathy stamp set (closest thing that I had to delicate flowers) and stamped a panel of flowers, then cut it apart to resemble screens. Even though you can't really see it in the picture, the pink cardstock is embossed with polka dots. Pink and black is one of my favorite color schemes.

World Card Making Day

On a whim, I decided to participate in the World Card Making Day challenges at Papertrey ink. Usually, I'm not very good at coming up with cards on my own, but once I got going, these were a blast! Memo to me: participate more often!

The first card was inspired by India. I found this patterned paper in my stash and it reminded me of India, plus added some bling to the bottom of the card. Love how this one turned out!
