Colour Inspiration #14

OK this has to be quick, got dishes to do and the Amazing Race is about to start.  Time for another colour inspiration challenge from Kristina.  This is the inspiration piece.


I didn't think I'd get around to completing this in time to make the cut off, but I the idea came to me at work this afternoon and it turned out just like I imagined (something that RARELY happens).  It's my best friends daughter's 15th birthday next week and  these colours are PERFECT for her and now I've got plenty of time to actually get there - the mail takes ages to get from Melbourne to Merimbula.

Here's what I came up with:

The card is 6-5/8" x 3-1/4", the same size as the SU Long Notes in last year's mini catalogue.  I've used American Craft Thickers, I think they're called GiftBox and they are self adhesive chipboard.  I LOVE these and wished I had bought more of them cause they were originally white - I've just rubbed them over the Rose Red ink pad and voila!  (and they're not quite dry yet, LOL)

Supplies Used:

Stamps:  Happy, Happy Birthday Wheel, Ink:  Basic Grey, Rose Red, Cardstock:  Basic Black, Going Grey, Accessories:  River Rock Stitched Ribbon, American Craft Thickers, Dimensionals.
