CMCC #21... your kindness

Hey there!!  Wednesday is here, again, and that means time for a brand new color challenge over at Colour Me...!  Tons of fabulousness in the gallery for last's weeks color combo.  This week we have three colors to work with:  dark brown, dark pink and soft blue.  All the details about the challenge can be found on the Colour Me...! blog.  Can't wait to see what you come up with this beautiful color combo!
 
For my card I employed one of my favorite techniques... collage stamping.  When I have a color combo that has several strong colors combined with a less assertive color collage stamping is a perfect way for me to create something that is pleasing to look at.  I pulled out three older Stampin Up! sets that I love:  Bliss, Artistic Etchings & French Foliage.  I started by stamping the soft blue using a beautiful damask image from Bliss and then layering on the other elements using the dark brown and dark pink.  Normally I would have stopped there, but I decided I wanted to balance things out a bit more by stamping a small collage of images in the opposite corner.  The sentiment is from the SU! set Blooming with Kindness. 

Thanks for stopping by...please check out the projects created by my fellow teamies Tara, Hayley, Sam, Katie, Brenda and May guest designer, LeAnne!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  Stampin Up!; Inks:  Stampin Up! Soft Sky, Early Espresso & Primrose Petal

You never cease to amaze me! I wouldn't touch collage stamping with a 10 foot pole, and you have totally mastered it, Rosemary! I also really love the color combo on this card! Simply gorgeous in every way!
