Inkspirations Colour Challenge #17

Just loving these challenges this weekend! This afternoon I am playing along with Makeesha and the team at Inkspirations with this colour palette:

Here is the wee card I’ve whipped up…

I have made this card for a very special person who is responsible for setting me on this fantastic craft journey (and she doesn’t even know it!). A dear family friend Barbara invited me to a Stampin’ UP! workshop presented by the lovely and talented Michelle Scott – and the stampin stuff just weaved it’s way into my blood!

So back to the card…

My mind is so full of valentines inspiration at the moment that my Full Heart Punch is permanently on my craft desk! I have used a combination of hearts with So Saffron DSP, and stamped images from the Simply Said stamp set in Chocolate Chip and Cameo Coral on a Vanilla Card Base.  Now that basically takes care of the colour challenge eh?

The sentiment is from the retired Yummy hostess stampset, and Ive added a ruffle of Chocolate Ribbon at the top.

I’ve got to talk to you about my spotty Chocolate Chip Cardstock – This border detail is achieved by punching a combination of different sized holes in a border randomly.  You can use an ordinary hole punch with your single hole punch from Stampin’ UP! OR as I have done, you can use a leather hole punch with a  dial of hole sizes from 2mm all the way up to 4.5mm (very useful!).

I think the holey border is really effective with the cameo coral peaking through – what do you think?

Now don’t forget to check out all the other crafter’s designs at Inkspirations.  Just click here.

Have fun blog hopping!
