Curing the Monday Blues

How do you cure the Monday blues? Here's how I do it. I make a card and submit it to the challenge hosted by my friend Taheerah called Cure for the Monday Blues.

Here is the card I made. I love this color palette. Yellow is my absolute favorite color and I really love how well the grey complements it.

Here is the inspiration photo:

Not only was I inspired by the colors, but I also drew from the bold stripes, polka dots, and the sign with the grey and yellow lettering. Often when I am creating, I have a general idea of the colors, images and sentiments I want to use, but I sometimes get stuck on the layout. That's why it's handy to have a Pinterest board of card sketches. I go to my board, look at the sketches, and choose one that I think will work with the other elements I plan to use. Here is the sketch I used for today's card, courtesy of Studio Calico.
