Kristina's Colour Inspiration #25

I decided to play in Kristina's CI challenge this week, as I really like these colours....and NO Pumpkin Pie in sight!!! My first thought when I saw the swatch was a quilt inspired card or a kids card. Unfortunately for me, by the time I actually had the chance to make something, I'd already seen a bunch of entries through google reader....featuring both ideas!!! I don't like to feel like I've copied someone else and so I went in a different direction. Here's the swatch:How cute is that froggy? Anyways, I decided that I would be inspired by the *stack* of quilts and the polka dots. Here's my take on it:
The colours are Ballet Blue, Ruby Red, So Saffron and Certainly Celery for the CS, Saffron and Celery DSP and Celery Brads. The ribbon is gorgeous Saffron embroidered from the "Fairytale" ribbon originals and the stamp is from "Celebrate Everyday". I stamped it on the Saffron CS in Ballet Blue and coloured the dots with Ruby marker. It's really pretty simple, but I love the way these colours look together and I was pretty happy with the end result.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend,
Kristie

I'm not usually into dots, but this card is very effective.
