Colour Inspiration #15

I know I've missed the cutoff for this week's Color Inspiration on Kristina's Blog, but I'd already started it and wanted to finish it...as you do ;-).

Here are Kristina's colours:



I thought that they would be really easy to work with, but I struggled.

Here is my card:



I've used the True Friend stamp set and Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon, both of which will be available from 1st August, when the Stampin' Up! Spring Mini Catalogue goes on sale in Australia. The Close To Cocoa velvet ribbon is from the Theatre Ribbon Originals set. I've done some Paper Piercing around the edge of the Close To Cocoa layer, and I have also sponged Classic Ink on the Close To Cocoa and Really Rust layers. I've used lots of Crystal Effects on the central flower image. LOVE that stuff!!



I hope that you are having a great weekend :-).
Sam.

I agree with Kristie. Your cards are always so beautiful and this is no exception. So glad you still made it so we could all see it Sam.

Lovely lovely lovely Sam! Your control of the crystal effects is astonishing! I have not ventured into crystal effects as yet because I'm a tad scared of it going everywhere! Do you give lessons?!
