Color Inspiration #38.

Hi Everyone!
Wow, 38 Color Inspirations. I can hardly believe it! This week's colors were fun: Pumpkin Pie, Ruby Red, Pretty in Pink and Whisper White. I've been looking back at some of my older stamps over the past few days and trying to make an effort to use them a bit more, including in my card for today. Sometimes when you don't use them for so long, it's like they are new again!
I started with a Pumpkin Pie base and paper pierced around the edges. Then I added a layer of Pretty in Pink.I used "Suitable for Framing" around the edges in Pink Piourette, Ruby Red and Pumpkin. I added the layer of Ruby Red in the middle next. I paper pierced in the corners; but it's a bit hard to see. I colored the "G is for Genuine" from "Around the Block" set with markers and stamped it on Whisper White. The "Friend" tag is from "Terrific Tags" and I used my tag punch to cut it out as well as for the Pretty in Pink piece behind it. I added the brad in the center of the tag and then a small piece of Riding Hood Red ribbon in the corner to finish the card. I hope you like it. Be sure to check out the other entries for this week on Kristina's site. Also, don't forget to scroll down for this week's recipe. Have fantastic day and as always, thanks for visiting with me!

Very cute. I really like the little ribbon knot on the top corner - it really finishes off your card.

Loving that ribbon! Hope SU gives it to us here if/when we get the same In Colors that you have in the US. Great job with the challenge, and you've reminded me that retired stamps are still good to use, I needed that! Thanks for visiting my blog too!
