More Colour Challenges

This evening I saw that Kristina had posted her colour challenge, with an end date of Thursday. I had to get cracking on my card then! I'm pretty sure I've used this colour combination, or at least something quite similar to it before, but that doesn't mean it's not worth revisiting! I picked up a pack of white textured cardstock today. It is simply stunning to use as a card base! I got a pack of 25 for 4.75. It's by World Win Papers, I believe. I got all the colours out for the challenge, and set about sketching a design. I decided Saffron flowers with Cocoa centers would be nice. I brought in the blue and the celery as background accent pieces. I also applied crystal effects to the flower centers to give the look of those round epoxy stickers.

Stamps: Birthday Basics, Beautiful Blooms (Papertrey Ink)
Ink: So Saffron, Close to Cocoa
Paper: Textured White, Close to Cocoa, White, Bashful Blue
Accessories, etc.: corner rounder, celery grosgrain, pop dots, crystal effects
