Kristina's Colour Inspiration #22

Another Kristina Werner CI challenge for you today. This one was surprisingly easy for me....not something I usually say about these challenges!!! Usually I put out CS in all the colours and sit there staring at it for ages before I decide what to do...but with this one as soon as I saw the picture I knew what I wanted to do. Here's the inspiration piece:

Colour Swatch

And here's my card:

S6300893

I've used the flowers from the level 3 Hostess set, "Time Well Spent" and stamped them in VersaMark on the Rose Red, Soft Sky, Regal Rose and Bravo Burgundy CS, then embossed them with white embossing powder. Then I spent ages sitting there cutting them all out...LOL! I used Burgundy for the card base, just because I find Whisper White is a little too flimsy to hold up when you stick a lot of stuff on it, and then layered on the White. I stuck all of the flowers on with either snail, Dimensionals, or Pop-up glue dots, depending on how high I wanted them to sit. I sponged the edges with a little Sky and stamped the "love you" sentiment from "Short and Sweet" in Sky ink as well.

This card will be going in the post today to my Grandma, who's not feeling very well at the moment...hence the sentiment. She's one of my favourite people in the world, and no-one can make me laugh like she does. According to Mama we have the same *twisted* sense of humour :)

OK, that's it for now. Hope you all have a marvelous day,

Kristie

PS: Who can believe I made a card with NO embellishments???? Not me!!

Great card, go Aussie girls in the top 10! What do you mean you used no embelishments, I would call your beautifully stamped and cut out flowers embelishments as they are 3D to your card.
