No specialty pumpkins here, just a cool color combination from Stampin’ 411! Their Color Inspiration calls for Brilliant Blue, Old Olive and Pumpkin Pie. I was a little skeptical at first but the colors are really fun together (and I need a fun birthday card!). I saw the sketch challenge over on Splitcoast yesterday (SC279) and had to give it a try. These colors seemed to call for using my Sweet Pea DSP (from the Occasions Mini). That paper pack has sure been great to use…so many super designs and so much paper! I pulled out the Big Shot and created some butterflies with the Beautiful Wings Embosslit (still available!). This card came together so quickly but it still felt like it was missing something. You know, when in doubt try ribbon or punch some holes for texture!! Ribbon didn’t work so out came the Mat Pack. A few holes later…here it is:
This is just the kind of card I was hoping for! I love the unique layout and these colors are a bit out of my norm. I have lots of Brilliant Blue so I am happy to have used some of it. Thanks for stopping by to take a look. Have a great day!
