Colour Challenge #23

Here is Kristina's Colour Challenge for this week. And I'm very proud of myself for actually sitting down and making a card for this weeks.... I missed out last week.

So here is our inspiration:-

The colours for this week are Bravo Burgundy, Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron and Old Olive.

And here is what I came up with:-


Unfortunately I didn't have any Bravo Burgundy Card stock so I substituted it for some Cranberry Crist (retired). I've used the 'Live Your Dream' stamp set, which I've stamped in VersaMark and then coloured using my Stampin' Pastels in Bravo Burgundy, Pumpkin Pie and So Saffron... the stems in Old Olive. The Butterfly is also stamped in Versamark and coloured in Bravo Burgundy (Pastels) and the 'Thankyou' sentiment is also from the same stamp set and is stamped in Chocolate Chip. I've torn some Old Olive Cardstock and 'Faux Stitched' it before attaching it to the top of the card and the bottom layer is some So Saffron DSP. Finished off with some Wide Chocolate Chip Grosgrain.

Hope you like.
