A Simple Thank You

I am participating in the current Colour Challenge over at

Aren't they such simple but stunning
colour combination.
Here is how my card came together -
I used basic card stock colours as above.
I inked my SU Woodgrain stamp in
Memento Paris Dusk and cut out part
of a Spellbinder Circle die to
display my flowers.
I used one of my favourite SU stamp sets/punch
Petite Petals (again Thanks Maria)
These were punched out after I inked them with
Memento Paris Dusk and a combination of
SU Yo Yo Yellow & Memento Peanut Brittle
to try and get the mustardy colour.
Behind my floral spray are leaves cut from
a Sizzix die. These were embossed with
that Cuttlebug favourite - Swiss Dots.
Added a few tiny flowers dotted with liquid pearls
and some punched circles to add a bit of interest to the
woodgrain background.
My sentiment is from SU and cut from an
EK Success double punch.
Finished with a gemstone on one of the flowers.
I would also like to enter this in the current Colour Challenge
over at Fashionable Stamping as their colour choice
is also the same.
Thanks for dropping by.
I love reading your Comments
and appreciate you taking time to do so.

Hi Ina. I love the way that you have combined the bold colours on this, they work beautifully on the woodgrain background. A gorgeous contrast! Thank you for joining us at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.
