KW Colour Inspiration #34


Ooooh, now these are my kind of colours! I was very excited to see Kristina's colours this week (it doesn't seem to take much to get me excited, hey?) but it's taken me a while to have some time to work on it. I had this idea pretty much from the start, got a flower stamped and then didn't get back to it till last night... With the time difference I don't think I have a chance to wait for better light for a photo so this one will have to do for now so I get this in on time.

I based the layout on Amy's sketch #40, though gave my card a landscape orientation. I do really like Bordering Blue, particuarly in combinations like this, so I decided to use a lot of it and have the plums as accent. Very simple card, but I like it.

All supplies by Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Sage Shadow, Bordering Blue, Whisper White
Stamp Set: Eastern Blooms
Inks: VersaMark, Pale Plum, Perfect Plum
Accessories: Certainly Celery 5/8" grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals
Shows watched while creating: Moonlight, Heroes
