Color Inspiration #34


Good Morning Everyone!

It's time once again for another Color Inspiration from Kristina. I have to say that this has been my least favorite color set since I've been participating in these. The colors this week were Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Sage Shadow, Bordering Blue and Certainly Celery. I had a really hard time with the Certainly Celery part of the group and I think that may be because of the Sage Shadow. Those are just two way too different greens to try to put together. I think it would have been best if the greens had been optional, as in choose one or the other. Having said all that, I kept the Celery very minimal on my card, limiting it to the ribbon behind the cake and the circle sentiment "Enjoy your Day", which is from an old set "Riveting". I knew I needed a birthday card and so I used "Birthday Whimsy" for my cake image. Once again, card is very simple, so no need to really go into a lot of details. This was the only thing I had a chance to do yesterday. I hope to do some more stamping today and be back to share some more things. Until then, have a good morning.
Also, one note. The Stampin' Up retired list for fall/winter 08 is now available. I have posted it on the right side for you to see. Special offer of 10% off these stamps now until Dec 23. In addition, SU is offering free shipping on orders over $70. Log onto my website and place your order today!

Very fun! You did a good job on the colors even though they are not your favorites. How did you do the little stamped borders between the papers? What stamp set is that?

Thanks for the sweet comment on my blog! I really like the different layers on your card. You did great to use all of the colours, I found it tricky too. And I can see you love your mat pack as much as I love mine!
