JAI #60 - Colour Challenge

There's a new challenge at JAI today - this week it's a colour challenge.  Colours that I like on their own and which look really good together also.  They are Rich Razzleberry, Old Olive, Whisper White and Crumb Cake


I based my card on this sketch I found over at Clean & Simple.  This is what I ended up with.


The oval panel was white, however I got a little excited when using the Tea Stain distressing ink and ended up covering more than I intended.  Never mind, I'm happy with the way it turned out.  I did find adding a sentiment a little hard.  I tried a few differnt things before settling on the 3 tiny tags.  I was also going to use the Very Vintage wheel on the base except I forgot and I stuck the DSP down before I remembered.  Ooops.

Well, I'd best be off - we're heading off to Loch Sport today for our friends 'Shinding' and I have to finish packing.

Have a great weekend and thanks for visiting.

Very pretty card Jo. I love the focal image stamped on textured CS, and those little tags are the perfect accompaniment.
