Teal & Orange, Sky & Rock

This was a card that I sketched out at work today. Originally I had included a third side tab, but I really wanted it to say "friend" or "to you" and I didn't have any stamps in the same font, so two tabs it was. This one was inspired by the pattern paper, it's by My Mind's Eye, and is called Sundance "The Best of Friends" Flowers/Orange. I was inspired by the colours and flower shapes in the paper. I wanted to add a bit of green, but none of the inks I had really worked. Instead, I went with River Rock, which is kind of sandy coloured with green tones. I was pleased with the result. I really like coming up with new-to-me colour combinations. For the tabs, I cut a strip of the pattern paper (the orange is the reverse design). For the tabs, since they were going to up so high on the one side, I applied tape to the high side, and a pop dot to the other to compensate and even them out.

Stamps: bloom by gel-a-tins, Green Thumb & Birthday Basics by PTI
Ink: Taken with Teal, Pumpkin Pie, River Rock
Paper: My Mind's Eye DP, Soft Sky, Pumpkin Pie, Confetti White
Accessories, etc.: brads, paper piercer, pop dots

I was really inspired by this colour combo, and I would LOVE to see your take on it. Who knows, there may even be a prize??
