hello... friend

Hello everyone!!  Enjoying a nice sunny, but cold Sunday!!  Have a little card to share that I made using the current layout from CAS(E) this Sketch, as well as the colors from the brand new Reverse Confetti color challenge.   Have to say that I was pretty darn excited to see that the gals over at CTS picked my little camper card as a CTS favorite!!  Thanks ever so much ladies!! 

 

The RC color combo is a fairly bold one of navy blue, orange and grey.  For my card I combined two RC sets:  Peacock Pretties and Forever Fall.  I think I stayed fairly true to the idea of the sketch, but did go a little outside the box with my image choices.  I started by stamping the woodgrain image from Forever Fall in SU!'s Smoky Slate on my cardstock.  I then layered on the peacock feather from Peacock Pretties in SU!'s Midnight Muse.  The heart from Forever Fall was stamped with orange and then the sentiment from Peacock Pretties was added using black ink.  To finish off my super clean design I added a grey, orange and navy My Mind's Eye enamel dots.  I did do a test run of my layout to make sure that I really like how the images worked together (and to make sure that they did work together, lol!). 

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  Reverse Confetti; Inks: Stampin Up!; Enamel Dots:  My Minds Eye

Hello Rosie
The colour combination is unique and you have matched up the stamps wonderfully, it is a great looking card, though I have to admit that my bohemian imagination thinks the peacock feather resemble a visitor from another planet!!!!!Ha.
