Inkspiration Colour Challenge #15

Happy Friday!!!!!
It's time for another Inkspiration Challenge, this week Keesh has set a Colour challenge for us all.

Here is my card for this week:-

And here are the colours to work with:-

Oh, you may think this layout looks familar....well it is, I used the same sketch that Keesh set for us last week... I REALLY enjoyed playing with that particular sketch so I figured WHY NOT!!!

It felt a bit strange making a 'Autumn' Coloured card in Spring, but to make it a little easier, I decided it was time my little Trendy Trees came out for a play.

I've used Choc Chip as the base of the card then layered it with some Very Vanilla and some Really Rust DSP from the retired Falls Flowers pack. I then added a Choc Chip strip and a little Choc Chip Grosgrain just to give it a little texture and contrast. I used my Round Tab punch to create the large Choc Chip circle... (oh I CAN'T wait for my NEW BIG circle punch to arrive!!!..ooops Sneak Peek again!!!) Then used my Scallop circle for the Very Vanilla scallop. There is a Really Rust circle and then the little tree stamped in Really Rust with some "dabs" of Close to Cocoa (see you thought I'd forgotten Close to Cocoa didn't you!! hahaha) onto Very Vanilla. I added a little Very Vanilla ribbon embelishment to it too. Up to the top of the card .. FINALLY a use for my since retired Really Rust buttons with a little Linen Thread and the sentiment is from Basic Phrases.

Hope you like this one... perhaps if you are one of my US readers you might like to have this card for yourself.... given you are in the middle of your autumn (FALL). If you think you'd like to receive this little card then be sure to leave me a comment. I'll choose a winner next Friday!!!
