Colour Challenge #24

Here is this weeks Colour Inspiration Challenge set by Kristina. I figured I'd best get in early with this one, given it could be a little while before I get the chance to sit down and make a card... with the arrival of Baby K#2 getting closer and closer...well pretty much any time now!!!! So I'll either have a little person to cuddle, which makes making cards a little bit tricky OR I'll be EXTREMELY sleep deprived... which would make for some very interesting card designs I think... hahaha. Anyway.. back on track, here is the inspiration picture for this week:-

The colours this week were Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, Kiwi Kiss (I used Old Olive) and Very Vanilla.

And here is what I came up with:-

I've used Pumpkin Pie as the base of the card... (Sammy will be PROUD!!!!) and then used my corner rounder punch to make a scallop edge on one side, then I used some Old Olive DSP and scalloped that also before sticking down at the top of the card. I then cut a slit in the the side and used a strip of Chocolate Chip cardstock as a band then tied a knot with some delicious Chocolate Chip Wide Grosgrain (just for something a little bit different really!!!) then I used my Oh So Lovely Stamp set (Hostess Level 1 set) to stamp the image on a Very Vanilla Circle in Old Olive ink and a flower from another Hostess Set (Cause for Celebration) which I attached with a Pewter Brad and popped up on a dimensional. The sentiment is from the So Many Sayings, yep you guessed it another Hostess Set, which I stamped in Chocolate Chip Ink onto some Pumpkin Pie Card stock.

Hope you like it.

Here is everything I used:-

Stamps:- Cause for Celebration (Level 2 Hostess Set), Oh So Lovely (Level 1 Hostess Set), So Many Sayings (Level 1 Hostess Set)
Card:- Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive DSP, Very Vanilla
Ink:- Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip
Accessories:- Chocolate Chip Wide Grosgrain Ribbon, Pewter Brad, Dimensionals, Corner Rounder Punch, Circle Punch.
