Colour Inspiration #8

I have been looking forward to Kristina Werner's Weekly Colour Inspiration Challenge this week. I am finding them a great source of, well...inspiration! DOH!

These are the colours for this week:



How pretty do they look all together?

This is my submission for this week:



I have used:
- Brilliant Blue, Bashful Blue and Whisper White cardstock;
- Jersey Shore Double-Sided Designer Series Paper;
- Pumpkin Pie Striped Grosgrain Ribbon (wrapped around the Whisper White Cardstock);
- On Board Blossoms and Basics (covered in the DSP), mounted up on Pop-Up Glue Dots and decorated with Circle Rhinestone Brads (in Pumpkin).

The 'Happy Birthday' sentiment is from the It's Your Birthday stamp set and is stamped in Basic Black Classic Ink.

Et voila!

Gotta get back to watching Lost now ;-).
Sam.

OMG Sam, you're unstoppable!! Methinks you may become a regular of Kristina's top ten if you keep these beauties up! I saw the challenge earlier, but haven't had a play yet.... It's well outside my comfort zone in terms of colours, but that's what it's all about I s'pose so I hope to have a crack at it tomorrow :)

I didn't realize that was ribbon until I enlarged the picture. It looked like PP. What wonderful card!

Another great card Sam. I love how you have wrapped the striped ribbon around the white cardstock, it looks very cool.

WOW! I stared at this neat card for awhile before I realized that was the SU striped grosgrain ribbon! Looks like designer paper! Very clever!
