I like using purple on a condolence card as I think it is both beautiful and peaceful . . .
The inspiration for this layout came from my own personal Pinterest-type file. It's filled with pictures of hundreds of blogged cards that have caught my eye and it comes in very handy when The Muse has temporarily abandoned me.
But here's the funny thing: my cards bear little resemblance to the inspiration cards! I never know what elements on an inspiration card will turn the key and open up the creative possibilities. So I never try to figure it out - I just collect pictures of whatever appeals to me and look for the fun of putting it all together at my worktable. The Muse usually comes out of hiding at that point and the two of us have a really good time!
