Welcome to the Around The World On Wednesday April Blog Hop and this month our theme is "At the Market". We have been challenged to find a photo of a market and use it as inspiration for our project. You will be visiting with our talented team members as they share their ideas and projects to help inspire you.
For my card design, I chose this photo taken at a marketplace in Instanbul, Turkey (shown above), as my inspiration. The focal image shows a coat with clean and simple lines with a wonderful pattern in blue and white. I was immediately reminded of one of the designs in the Heart & Home Designer Series Paper, and it became the basis for my card design. Instead of the bright yellow of the scarf, I chose to use Gold Foil and Gold embossing to embellish my card design.

I love how the designer series paper creates a similar flow with the curved detail of the design. While the Misty Moonlight I chose isn't the same blue as the coat design, I liked the way it created a similar feeling. The Gold Foil die cuts reminded me of the floral elements in the coat and along with the Gold embossing, provides a pop of color similar to the yellow scarf. I kept the details to a minimum to mimic the clean and simple lines of the coat. This card design would also work well as a masculine card design for a variety of occasions. I love how this card turned out and how it was inspired by finding a connection between a design on a coat and a pattern of a piece of designer series paper.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. I hope that my card design will help inspire you to look at the world around you for inspiration to help you create your own beautiful projects.
