Kristina's Colour Inspiration #21

Kristina has posted a quickie CI challenge today with the cutest shoes....I have a bit of a shoe fetish so I NEEDED to do this challenge, as opposed to working on my swaps for Regionals :) Here's the inspiration piece:

090308-colorinspiration21

I was inspired by the cute little flower thingy on the toe part of the shoes. It reminded me straight away of the big chipboard flower in the On Board Blossoms and Basics, so that's what I went with:

S6300832

The petals are covered in Tempting Turquoise and the centre is Regal Rose. The card base is Rose Red and the leaves and sentiment are from A Perfect Day rub-ons on Old Olive. I rounded the corners on the base and the Olive panel and also used the Flitting By butterfly wheel in VersaMark, cause butterflies and flowers go together, right? I finished it off with a bit of White grosgrain ribbon.

I think it's cute and I'm going to pop it in the mail to my Mama, she loves butterflies and she's really sweet too!

Hope you all have a fabulous day. I'll be back tomorrow with some sneak peaks of the swaps I've been working on.
