Kristina's Color Inspiration # 9

Hello Readers of my blog!

It is Colour Inspiration time again. This week, Kristina's Color Inspiration #9 is a great combo:

My card this week is:

The card is 5 x 5 inches. The background cardstock is Old Olive. The next layer is Pumpkin Pie and I have used the 1/4" circle punch around the edges and have put a piece of Real Red underneath so that it shows through. This dual layer is mounted up on Dimensionals.

The next layer is Tempting Turquoise. There is then a small piece of So Saffron Prints Paper (from this month's Stampin' Up! promotional offering), and I have wrapped a piece of Wide Grosgrain Ribbon in Old Olive around this.

The chipboard is from the On Board Accents range. I stamped it in versamark then sprinkled on Heat and Stick Powder, heated it briefly with the heat tool, sprinkled on Romantic Red Glitter and heated again briefly to set. The whole piece is mounted up on Dimensionals (lot of them ;-).

A close up to show the glittery Glitter ;-)...

The sentiment is from the So Many Sayings Level I Hostess Set and has been stamped in Real Red.

Thanks for looking!

BTW...Happy Birthday to Kristina for the 15th! My son also shares her birthday...Happy Birthday little man!

OOOH, love the red glitter on the star. Where'd you get that from?? I also love the colour showing behind the punched holes.

I also meant to congratulate you on your 2nd week in the top 10 with last week's entry. Way to go!

Thanks also for asking about Jarrod's dad - he seems to be doing OK.

This is so cool! I can't believe all of the amazing details on this card (how did you get the little circles to be perfectly spaced???)

Nice work!!
