Inspired by… a label!!

Whilst doing a spot of clothes shopping last week I couldn’t help but notice the tags on the girls clothes in John Lewis.  Well, as I sat down at my desk last night I caught a glimpse of one of the tags that had been discarded on the floor by one of the girls and was immediately inspired.  The colours just screamed Melon Berry and Dark Chocolate to me so away I went to get my Butterfly Dreams and Fancy Flourishes stamp sets from Papertrey Ink.

And here is what I came up with.  Girly or what?  I went over the swirls with a quickie glue pen and prisma glitter just to add some sparkle and the ribbon is Dark Chocolate satin.  
I am definitely going to look for inspiration in this way again – the card just came together so easily!
Have a great day all.
