Muse Monday #5

This week's Muse Monday is brought to you by the number 31. It was my friend Lalo's birthday last week and he turned...31. The inspiration for this card came from the blog Color-Collective.  Lauren Willhite's blog is a great place to start if you're looking for striking combinations or just trying to come up with a color scheme. It's a site I look to all the time for inspiration on color combinations for my cards. She's even done some cool art to outfit inspirations in Lucky (which is where the photo below is from).

Another source of inspiration for this card was the candy in these jars. I just love the shapes and colors, specifically the turquoise and citron ribbon candy. Needless to say, Lalo loved the card. The pop of orange was the finishing touch as that's his favorite color.
