Inkspiration Colour Challenge #24

Happy Friday!!!

Hope you've had a FABULOUS week. The Kale' home has been struck down this past week with a nasty virus and a BIG dose of Laryngitis for me... although I'm sure my hubby and little flossies thought that was a fabulous treat.. hahaha.

Today Keesh has given us a Colour Challenge to play along with and here is my card:-

Here is the colour combo for you to see and play along with:-

Now... when I first saw this combo.. I must admit to having a little panic attack.. OK it was a BIG one... I wasn't sure how this was going to work, BUT... I have to say, I'm kinda liking this colour combo together, it's quite soft and elegant. Gotta love that about CHALLENGES right?... definately makes you move out of your comfort zone and for me well you all know what that is... PINK and Kraft... and there is ABSOLUTELY none of either in this one.

I've started with a base of Whisper White then added some Sage Shadow cardstock and some DSP which has unfortunately retired. I then added another strip of Sage card and some Whisper white stamping the flourish image from my Vintage Vogue set in Basic Grey then added some White ribbon and a little Apricot Appeal flower from Vintage Vogue to the top. VERY VERY SIMPLE!!!

Be sure to pop on over and visit the rest of the Inkspiration DT for some amazing inspiration:-


Be sure to play along this week and link your card over at Keesh's blog. We'd love to see what you come up with.

Thanks for stopping by.


Here's what I used:-

Stamps:- Vintage Vogue, Picture This (Hostess)

Ink:- Basic Grey, Sage Shadow, Apricot Appeal
