On my recent (like last week) trip to Africa, my daughter wore an African dress that left me filled with color inspiration! In the end, I don't like my card NEARLY as much as I loved loved loved her dress......but that's the way the cookie crumbles sometimes......these colors have been banging around in my brain, but when I actually made a card with them, it feels sort of HO-HUM compared to her dress!! We made so many memories......such an awesome trip!! Happy Tuesday everyone!

Well, since "we" didn't see the dress "or" experience the real flavor of visiting Africa .... I'll just tell you that this is dynamic and so beautifully infused with color that it is memorable in a very good way on it's own!! :)
Oh yes .... Congrats on taking such an amazing trip!! My DD has told me that it is unforgettable (as a beginning comment) ... and now I shall need to be colored in an appropriate envious green color please!

It is gorgeous, Karen. The colors are as wonderful as that dress and I know your memories of your daughter wearing it in Africa will love forever in your memory. I love what you have created with these bright colors!!
