KWerner CI #29



I always underestimate how tricky Kristina's colour challenges can be... the colours look so great together in the inspiration piece, but when I try to work with them, it's never quite as easy to get the right balance. So I used a lot of Whisper White in this one... ;) I am happy with the way it turned out though, so it was worth the struggle.

recipe (all SU!): Whisper White notecard; Pumpkin Pie cardstock; Pumpkin Pie striped grosgrain ribbon; Whisper White cardstock; Fall Flair (Hostess level 2) and Wow Flowers (sentiment) stamp sets; Pumpkin Pie and Pacific Point classic inks; Elegant Eggplant and Taken With Teal Stampin' Write markers, 1 1/4" circle punch; Stampin' Dimensionals; Stampin' Sponge.

Your card looks really nice. Just looking at the colors by themselves I wouldn't have guessed how good they look together.

Those colors look great together! What an awesome job you did of putting it all together. I love how you distressed all the edges to provide more defintion to the shapes!
