Kristina's Colour Inspiration #17

It's that time of the week again, another colour inspiration challenge from the awesome Kristina Werner. This week the inspiration is from this amazing 50's dress {I would so wear that!}, and the colours are Rose Red, Regal Rose, Sage Shadow and Whisper White - definitely my kind of colour scheme!
This is my card:
As soon as I saw the inspiration I thought of this cute flowery dress from the retired "Bloomin' with Happiness". I stamped the dress in Sage Shadow onto Whisper White CS and coloured it in with markers in Rose Red and Regal Rose. I left some of the flowers white and dabbed them with Crystal Effects and sprinkled on some Dazzling Diamonds glitter. I mounted that onto a piece of Regal Rose and stamped the "Celebrate" sentiment from "Wonderful Words" in Sage onto a White card base. I used some of the wide double stitched Rose Red ribbon from the 'Fairytale' ribbon originals behind the image panel to set it off. It's really simple, but in real life it's super pretty and sparkly, and I thought it would be nice as a wedding card or even a girly birthday card.

I really love these colours and might even have another play with them.

Hope you have a great day, wherever you are.

Kristie
