Kristina's Color Challenge #23




Ok so I think I have come to terms with Bravo Burgundy! I still prefer Purely Pomegranate. Pumpkin pie with anything Pink and Old Olive is my favorite... What a great match they are....
I really had fun making this card and it came together quite fast.. I don't really look at layout before I start making cards I think color inspires me the most.. I usually put all the color from the challenge in from of me while I am looking at them a stamp of Idea some to my head... I don't think I have ever had a card end up the way I had first envisioned it... I just evolves and even to the last minute I am making additions and I am usually pretty happy with the results...


All Stampin' Up unless otherwise stated
Stamp set: Eastern Elegance
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Pumpkin Pie, So Saffron
Ribbon: Old Olive, natural twine 
Paper: So Saffron, Baroque Burgundy, Very Vanilla, tag and more very vanilla
Misc: Crystal Effects. Beads(provo craft)
