Challenging Colours

Concord Crush, Peach Parfait and Blushing Bride are the colours, which was a really challenging combination for me.  But I guess that is the idea of challenges now, isn’t it??! 🙂
And it’s this week’s Stampin’ Royalty colour challenge.  I did struggle with this colour combination and with the card, it just didn’t want to come together, and I am still not entirely happy with it.
I have combined the colour challenge with a sketch from Mojo Monday. I love working to sketches, I can always see so many different ways to use them, the only challenge I have is deciding which particular idea to use.
Anyway, the card uses Twitterpated DSP, the stamp is from the Bordering on Romance (gorgeous) Stamp Set, and the ribbon from the new mini catalogue.  I have stamped the images in Stazon Ink (so that the black doesn’t run when it is coloured) onto Shimmer White Cardstock.  Unfortunately you can’t see it in the photos, but there is just a nice little bit of a glittery look.  And I have used some half back pearls for the centres of the flowers.  It may also be difficult to tell from the photos, but I have cut out some exra flowers and popped them up to add some dimension.

Quick update: This card was chosen as a Top Pick at Stampin’ Royalty! 🙂
Hope you get some stamping time in your day.
