    I followed on Pinterest. The insp. photo is sweet but if I was crafting I'd add a mid tone neutral like Kraft to keep it from looking too childish.

    What I think about the picture: Inspiring textures: gritty, a crunch then soft, stiicky,dimensional.  Inspiring smells and tastes: fruity and sweet or fruity and salty (when I used to work in industry they gave us salt covered jellies to help us tolerate intense heat in summer).  Lemon, lime, cherry, spice, wintergreen.   Inspired designs: birthday cards with these colors as ballons or cupcakes; children's get well cards with heart shaped flowers or ballons; buttons (OMG what fun those would be shaped in these colors and covered with highly textured glitter).  Thank you so much, I feel the need to craft now!!!

    Honestly — I LOVE sugared gummy candies, so my first question is are they tangy/sweet/tart? cuz that's what all these colors do for me –they ZING! and if they taste as good as they look then they are winners in any medium.
