Inspiration piece

Still catching up with posts from last week! I was a few days late in setting the Inspiration and Themes challenge over on In Love With Stamping due to being away - I got there in the end and here's the picture I chose for inspiration:

How funky are they?! Here's the card I made based on the picture - I love the pink and yellow colour combo on the card even if I probably wouldn't wear the trainers!

This is my favourite fold at the moment! (Instructions here).

Side view:

Stamps - Crazy for Cupcakes
Ink - Memento
Card - Whisper White/Regal Rose/So Saffron DSP
Other - Scallop Edge punch/sewing machine/buttons (Papertrey Ink)/Pretty in Pink ribbon/Copics/adhesive gems/Nestabilities

Must get on with some work, and then make a start on decorating my study... it's a vile shade of mauve (apologies to any mauve fans!) - I don't know how I've been able to work in there (or even go in there lol!) so it's way over due for a makeover. Soon it will be a nice shade of pale green..phew!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Kate, this is stunning and what great inspiration. I am really going to have to have a go at this type of fold!

Mmm - yummy! Love the fold, I'll have to have a go at that one. Like how it will flatten for a standard envelope. Sara xx

Good grief-those trainers are hideous-I actually feel ill-urgh! Top marks for getting inspiration_ I feel sick even now!
LOVE the card though-colours are fab-I'd never have thought of them, but please, I beg you, no more revolting items for inspiration, I need a lie down!
