Kristina's Colour Challenge #37

I am so glad to be playing along with Kristina's Colour Challenge this week. I've missed the last few due to Chrissy, Birthdays and New Years. But, I was determined to have a go this week.

Here is the Inspiration picture for this week:-


The colours are Old Olive, Baja Breeze (I;ve used Soft Sky... we don't have Baja Breeze just yet!), Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White.

And here is what I came up with... let me tell you though.. It didn't come out at all like I had pictured it in my head... but here it is anyway:-


I actually based this card on a this card I made last year... I really liked the layout so thought I'd have another go at it but with different colours and theme.

I've used Chocolate Chip as the base of the card and have clear embossed using my Polka Dot background stamp, then I've layered some Whisper White and a piece of Soft Sky which I've scalloped and then another layer of Chocolate Chip, which I dry embossed with my Crop-a-dile.. It just gives it another bit of dimension.
I've used flowers from my Felt Fusion (the small ones) and also from my Die Cuts (from the recent Spring Mini) , which I also added a little more dimension by outlining them with my Markers ( and I have to say... WHY DID IT TAKE ME SOOOO LONG TO GET SOME OF THESE???? . One of the few pieces of stamping on this card are the leaves which I've stamped in Old Olive from my Bodacious Bouquet set. The only other bit of stamping is the sentiment 'be happy' which is from my So Many Sayings Set ( Hostess Level 1). Ive stamped that in Pumpkin Pie and layered it onto a small piece of Soft Sky. Finally it is all tied off with a piece of Old Olive Wide Grosgrain and them mounted up on Dimensionals.

Well I hope you like my card for this week. I'll be back soon with some more goodies to show you.
