Muse Monday {Special Delivery}

Today’s Muse Monday {I know, it’s Tuesday, but I did complete the card on Monday!} is brought to you by the colors purple and gold. I found this fantastic gold and purple paper at Paper-Source and just knew I needed to incorporate it into one of my cards. After searching high and low on pinterest, I found the perfect muse- Sea of Shoes.  Jane produces a blog that is beyond inspiring. She is extremely creative with her personal style as well as the settings she creates. I also found inspiration in the form of home decor. You truly can find anything on pinterest. Based on my pins, my friend Hadley actually sent me a note saying he was expecting my next card to be inspired by purple and gold. You can learn a lot about a person by what they pin!

This card is for my sister-in-law. She just had the first granddaughter in our family. Up until now, it’s been all boys, so grandma is especially happy! Her name is Divya—which is one of my favorites. To say this girl is going to be spoiled is an understatement, as you can already tell by the divalicious card I’ve made. I hope she likes it! I can’t wait to meet her.
