All things Unity Challenge 14- Be inspired

This week's Unity inspiration is the fun photo above. Now you make look at my card and start scratching your head but I will explain my creative thought process. First- I will admit the bright colours threw me- I am SO not a bright colour girl. Then I got hung up on what country did it represent? Finally I stopped analyzing and just let my eyes wander around the photo to see what inspired me. After I stopped stressing I kept coming to the flags and things that float in the breeze. Then it came to butterflies- they float in the breeze and I will always use any excuse to use a butterfly on my card. I did use the green in the photo but other than that I let the inspiration the flags gave me take over and let the card create itself.

Take a look at the photo again and see what inspires you? Instead of copying it which is what I normally do- just let an element of the picture carry you away. Your card may create itself like mine did :)

To see how the rest of my fellow ATU gals got inspired click here to go to the challenge blog and see how diverse we all were. I just love it!

Cheers- Andi xoxo
