Creativity is a central source of meaning in our lives---when we are involved in it, we feel that we are living more fully than during the rest of life.

Getting My Creative Mojo Back with a Color Challenge

I often find that after the big holiday rush and making nothing but Christmas cards/projects for weeks on end that it is hard to shift gears and start making other things. This year seemed worse than most, probably because I was still making Christmas things right up until Christmas Eve day! Yes, I was a bit behind this Christmas! I think I've finally overcome my creative block and have moved on to making other things now. Today I'm sharing a card I made for a friend's birthday and also for the color challenge over at Stamp TV, which was to use pink, brown, and white for your card. I love those colors together so this was a fun one to make!

Here are the card details:
White card base is Pure Luxury Heavy Base Weight White from Gina K Designs
Pink, Tan, Dark Brown are all from Bazzill papers
Designer Paper is Basic Grey Bittersweet
The images and sentiment are stamped on Pure Luxury Layering Weight from Gina K Designs

Main focal image stamps are all from the Perfectly Polished stamp set by Rupa Shevde for Gina K Designs
Sentiment is from Hip to Be Square set by Melanie Muenchinger for Gina K Designs

I colored the images with Copics, added some sparkle to the nail polish bottles with some Spica pens and covered the entire image with crystal lacquer to make it look like a window. The circle is stamped with Memento Angel Pink and the sentiment is Memento Rich Cocoa.

Here is the inside of the card:
I rarely add anything but a sentiment on the inside of my cards but one the sheets of dp in the Bittersweet pad has different border strips and this one went so well with this card that I had to cut it out and use it on the card. The sentiment on the inside is from the Eclectic Summer Sayings stamp set by Gina K.
Don't you just love these colors together? I sure do! I hope you enjoyed seeing my card today and I hope your creative mojo is ready for a whole new year of creativity! Here's to lots of creative cards and projects in 2010! Thanks for stopping by!
