hello....

hello friends!! another week is has come and gone!  have a little card to share that i made using this week's colourQ combo, as well as the current retro sketch.  


the colourQ combo is a fun one that combines one of my favorite colors (stampin up!'s cherry cobbler) with kraft, light brown, yellow and white.   i wasn't completely sure that the yellow patterned paper would look good with brownish patterned paper, but they compliment each other nicely, i think... probably because i didn't use huge amounts of either!  the ribbon is supposed to be kraft in color, but it is almost the same exact color as the brown patterned paper.  anywhoo... the flower is from the stampin up! set everything eleanor which i love and the sentiment is from hero arts. this week's retro sketch is a really pretty one and so i just had to get something made using it.  challenge closes in a few hours so i'm just squeaking it in! having said that i quite like how this little card turned out! 

thanks for stopping by.....

supplies: cardstock:   pti white; stamps:  hero arts & stampin up!; patterned paper:  stampin up!; dies:  stampin up!/sizzix doily die, my favorite things fishtail flag stax dies; inks: stampin up!

Hello Rosie
Your combination of elements in the different colour hues look great, and I agree they do compliment one another wonderfully.
It is a beautiful card.
