KW Colour Challenge #15

Kristina has posted her latest colour challenge, and this card is my response. While the colours lend them selves to autumn themes, and are also similar to the Outlaw papers and Round Up kit, I wanted to do something a bit different with them. Normally I'd use Vanilla with brown tones so I decided to use white as a bit of a feature with the beads and white gel pen. Once again it's quite a simple card but I do like how it has come out.

All supplies by Stampin' Up!

Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Close To Cocoa, Really Rust, Certainly Celery, Whisper White
Stamp sets: Occasional Greetings, So Swirly
Inks: Close To Cocoa, Chocolate Chip
Accessories: Pretties Kit, Theater Ribbon Originals pack, dimensionals, 3/16" corner rounder, white gel pen
