Muse Monday - Pastels

In need of a birthday card for my girlfriend Kelly, I found my inspiration today on pinterest via Nichole Heady’s boards. I’ve been a fan of Nichole for almost two years now, from the moment I first stumbled upon Papertrey Ink. Papertrey Ink is the online store I get the majority of my stamping supplies from-their products rock! If you’re crafty and looking for inspiration, check her out. Her blog is full of wonderful tutorials, techniques and ideas. Each month she posts a countdown to the new products they will release on the 15th and on the 25th of each month she hosts a blog hop. It’s truly a fantastic place to stop if you are in need of some creative ideas.
