JAI #50 - Colour Combo

This week at JAI it's a colour challenge

When faced with a colour challenge, I like to gather all my colours together to see what they look like together.  These were kind of floral colours to me, so I started pulling out stamp sets I thought would look good, when I came across Cheep Talk.  Bingo, just what I was looking for and this is what I made

I took a bit of inspiration from Felicity's Christmas card with the ribbon treatment, and I was pleased to use another stamp set for the first time :).  It's a bit hard to tell but the little bird is popped up on a dimensional as is the sentiment.

Well, that's it from me today.  Finally, it appears we are getting some warm weather, typical when I have to return to work on Monday :(  Hope you have a wonderful day and weekend.

Supplies Used:  All Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted
Stamps:  Cheep Talk, Hello Again
Ink:  So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz, Riding Hood Red
Cardstock:  Elegant Eggplant, Very Vanilla, So Saffron
Accessories:  Riding Hood Red Striped Ribbon (retired), Linen Thread, Bigshot, Cloud Die and purple button (Papertrey Ink)

Love your card Jo. Funny to read how you went about it....I too had Cheep Talk in my hand at the start of my you can see I came up with something entirely different, as is quite normal for me.

I can't seem to become a follower of yours. Any ideas?

Ohhh - cute clouds. And I just love that ribbon. I must get some more of it. It's so soft and yummy.

I've finally got here to comment Jo! I love how you've used the colour combo to make such a clean, bright card. So gorgeous.
