Color Inspiration #54 take two

Hi!
Yes, I changed my entry! I wasn't happy with the first one. Being new to this I'm overwhelmed by all the amazing cards and layouts that sometimes I find myself trying to reproduce something else instead of taking all the inspiration and doing 'my thing' and trusting my heart.... so this is me trusting my heart. Someone (can't remember their name) from the Hero Arts Flickr group gave me amazing advice (I have to thank her) and that is to take a break from all the eye candy and blogs and to just do your own thing!

This card is me.


I so love the colours in this challenge. Basically I used my nestabilities to make the circles....the buttons are my handmade fimo buttons. I used Making Memories Tag Maker to frame my XOXO stamp.
Have a great day!
Pin It!

Jane,

Thanks for looking at my card. It's always nice to see that others have viewed your card and like it. I love your card as well. I had the same thing happen to me w/ the wrong card. I always have to remind myself to just do my own thing.

I love this card and want to say: if this is you, then stay as you are! Do your cards with your inspiration: it is great and giving a really good result!
But I exactly know what you mean: I am also quite new to the blogging world and sometimes I have a kind of guilty conscience people could think I am just copying them. But in fact, I like so many things I see in the different blogs... that on the one hand I am not too satisfied with my own results or that I make it in a similar way as I like these others cards so much. The thing is (IMHO) to reveal your own style... and I am working on this.
I think, you've already found it ;-)

Jane thanks so much for taking the time to visit my blog, I really appreciate it when visitors leave a comment! This is the first time I've seen your blog, and I'm going to be back! Wow your buttons are fabulous - I think if Fimo notice a spike in their sales, it's due to you and your tutorial - thanks for sharing! I love your entry to Kristina's challenge too, it's beautiful.

So cute! I love the flower!

Thanks for the stopping by and leaving comments...LOVE the flower, all of the texture is amazing. Know what you mean about the blog candy, it gets so overwhelming and you find yourself wanting to throw everything into one card. I finally just started falling back on my good old "go to"....Less is More! Great job!
