Boden inspiration

I love the clothing company Boden.  http://www.bodenusa.com/  I want one of everything in the catalogue.  Today I'm going to show you how to use photographs as inspiration for a card project.  I started with these darling little calendars.  I chose paper based on the colors in the catalogue.

For the first card, I actually cut from the catalogue, and made some polka dot paper to mimic her waders.

On this card, I punched large circles.  I cut the in half to make the scallops that you see on the skirt!

The hearts on this card mimic the hearts found on the skirt... amazing color combination!

I really wanted this tunic with the striped sleeves... by the time it went on sale it was sold out.  I made a cardstock striped background to mimic the sleeves.

I just happened to have the polka dot paper, similar to the pattern in the shirt.  I love turquoise and lime green together.

On this card I used striped red paper like the model's shirt, and buttons like you see on the baby's sweater.

Inspiration is all around you... have a wonderful day!
