Color Inspiration #30

I was very excited to see that Kristina posted her Color Inspiration a little early this week. It mean't that I could have a play while waiting for the washing to finish :-).

This week's colours are:


And, this is the card that this graphic has inspired me to make:



You will probably have noticed two things about my cards of late. 1/ I am slightly enamoured with the A-frame layout, and 2/ I'm still having a 'thing' for rub-ons.

The rub-ons I have used here are retired, but there are still so many other sets to chose from. The background cardstock is textured Sahara Sand. Then there is a thin layer of Old Olive cardstock. The white is Glossy white cardstock, and the ribbon is Certainly Celery from the Fairy Tale Ribbon Originals pack. The hodge podge is Styled Silver.

Back to the washing now...boo hoo ;-).

Take care,
Sam.

Stunning creation yet again, Sam! I was hoping to play this round, but I don't own a single bit of Sahara Sand, no ink, no marker, no card. Hmmmm, actually I think there is some Sahara Sand in some of my DPs. Oooh I'll have to have a look when the kids go down :)
