Kristina's Colour Inspiration #15

Another Colour challenge from Kristina Werner this week. This bedding is just gorgeous, but these earth elements colours are not really "me", though they're very Mama.
I used Julee's Mojo Monday sketch #45 for the layout, and the CS is obviously Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Really Rust and Whisper White. The ribbon is Certainly Celery and the flower and sentiment are from my brand new 'Bloomin' with Beauty' that's in the mini catty starting August 1st. The sentiment and top of the flower were inked with Really Rust and the stem in Celery. The little Cocoa button is from the Earth Elements and Neutrals buttons and threaded with some hemp twine.
I had intended on colouring the flower, but once I'd stamped it I decided that I really liked it just in outline like that so..... There is a lot of 'white space' on this card...I had thought of putting some DSP from the new Apple Cider range in the background where the cocoa is, but in the end I went with what I like best, clean and simple. One of these days I might just get the hang of the 'busy' card...but usually when I try it just looks like a 5 year old got loose in the craft room!
There's more time left in this challenge, so I may even try again....who knows? Whatever happens I'm going to send this card off to Mama. Last night we were talking about this set and she was saying how much she liked this flower, and they are definitely 'her' colours.
Have a great day
Kristie
