Put it on Paper

Time has come for me to get some business cards.  I think the easiest way to do that is design them myself and print them as needed.  We traveled quite a bit this past winter and I always hated not having any business cards to hand out.  So I have been researching and a few things have inspired me to come up with 3 designs.

My wedding is still a constant source of inspiration for me because honestly it is a "mixed tape" of blogs, photos and ideas that I gathered from others.  I met an amazing florist, Alison Kynerd Thomas, with Buttercup Blooms. This is her magic!  (Her website will be up by the end of the month so I will keep y'all posted!)

Maybe I could redesign that bouquet into a business card.

I also have been drooling over peacock feathers lately. I am not sure how I want to incorporate them into my daily life but I did purchase some shoe clips similar to these from etsy seller, Sofisticata.  For only $25 you can dress up a pair of shoes you already own!

I also can't stop admiring my friend, Patty George's, Peacock painting.  I may have to save up for another artwork purchase.  My home is slowly becoming a Patty George gallery. (Side note: Patty is also an amazing travel agent by day and would love to help you plan your next vaca. Info can be found here)

 Maybe I could redesign that peacock into a business card.

And finally twitter and the blogs are all abuzz due to New York Fashion Week. It began on February 10th and continues through the 17th.  Even  Pantone has a fashion color report for Fall 2011's hottest new colors.

Maybe I could redesign that color scheme into a business card.
