KW Colour Inspiration #37

What a fabulous colour challenge Kristina posted this week! Quite often when i am working on a colour challenge I will get out my swatches of the particular colours and then start thinking about stamp sets that might work with that. This week however I got out my swatches and then the matching ribbons and embellishments... from that this card fell into place smile. Which is probably why there isn't a whole lotta stamping, but I still like it.

Most supplies by Stampin' Up!
Cardstock: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Soft Sky
Stamp Sets: Paisley, Simple Delights
Inks: Soft Sky
Accessories: Felt Fusion flowers, Earth Elements buttons, clear buttons, Aged Copper Hodgepodge (for the measley little brad), 3/4" circle punch, Chocolate Chip 1" double-stitched ribbon, white cotton floss

Just kidding - (I always like to look and see what you are jamming to :) (i am going to try using my DH's computer for checking my email - hopefully that will work - will let you know - and guess what I am watching tonight? definitely not the Hand that Rocks the Cradle (yikes!! :) Great to talk to you - sendin you big hugs!
