Colour Combo Challenge

It has once again been a while since I have updated my blog. I am still creating, but I don't always take the time to upload my photos.

Kristina's colour challenge
kicked my butt into gear this week to get something posted.

The inspiration came from this photo from West Elm.

I didn't use any of the design elements as inspiration, but I did use most of the colours.

This card base is 41/4 by 51/2 Old Olive with the fold at the top. Then I have Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, and Very Vanilla layers each 1/4 of an inch smaller.

The image is stamped in both Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip to create a bit of a shadow.

The flowers are stamped with Taken with Teal, and I had some primas that fit with the colour and shape perfectly, so I added those too.

I used Stardust Stickles in the centres of all of the flowers (stamped, and primas). The ribbon is the 5/8 Old Olive grosgrain from Stampin Up. I wanted to include a sentiment, but It just didn't fit on the card.

Hi Tamara, I like your use of primas and stamped flowers together...a very nice effect.

Very pretty! Love what you did with the ribbon!

This is really pretty! I love the colours you pulled out of the inspiration piece.

p.s. Thanks for visiting my blog! I just wanted to say that I am in Canada, so high Canadian shipping is a norm, but that purchase was twice as much ... :)

I don't have that Baroque Stamp ... I love it though & your great card is just a reminder how fun it would be to use. TFS, Amy.
