Simply Stampin' Colour Challenge

Good Morning,

A big thank you to everyone who entered the sketch challenge last week, it was my turn to choose the Top 3, and you guys certainly made it a difficult job! Hope on over to the Simply Stampin' Challenge to see if you're on it.

This week its a colour combo, and if like me you seem to have made mostly Christmas cards lately this colour combo may get you thinking outside the Christmas box.

I am definitely loving this bright combination, and it also gave me an excuse to ink up a set that I bought but haven't used yet, (what with all the Christmas preparation) it's called Everything Eleanor and it is beautiful!!

I started with a Concord Crush base, then stamped the flourish from the set in Lucky Limeade onto Whisper White CS, I then inked the edges of this panel with Melon Mambo and adhered. Next I stamped the main banner shaped in Concord Crash, and stamped the sentiment (one of the retired hostess sets from last year, Afterthoughts) in Whisper White ink (hopefully you can see it if you look closely) before cutting out. I added Jumbo Eyelets to each end so I could thread the beautiful Lucky Limeade ruffled ribbon through. Finally I added some stamped flowers and finished then off with sparkly Glimmer Brads!

Can't wait to visit you and see what you come up with using these beautiful colours, xx

Ooh, I love flourishes! Your card is really elegant, I love it :) those are not colours I'd often use together, although pink and green always go surprisingly well together, I should do it more often! :)
