Kristina Werner Color Inspiration Challenge #36

This is the first time I have ever played a Kristina Color inspiration challenge. I have seen what other people have done and really like their creations. As I was surfing around the blogging world I popped by today and saw that she had posted #36 so I thought while I have a spare hour I'd have a go at making a card. Below is the color inspiration.


This is what I came up with. I wasn't too sure how I was going to incorporate the old olive, but I am really pleased with how this turned out. I have had this set from SU! for a while now but hadn't even put the stamps together, so I thought I'd break it out! I must get some more pretty in pink card as I had to search through my oddments to find some!!! 


{Ingredients}
Card Stock: Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, Old Olive & Whisper White (All SU!)
Ink: Old Olive, Rose Red, Pretty in Pink & Always Artichoke
Stamps: A Rose is a Rose, Sincere Salutations, Polka dot
Accessories: Rose Red Stitched Grosgrain Ribbon, Pearl Gems 

Thanks for looking!

A rose is a rose stamp always looks so elegant and "grown up" but what I like about this is the faux (I assume) stitching on the background card to match the ribbon - nice touch.

This is the first time I have participated in Kristina's Challenge so I have had a look at some other cards. This is the first time viewing your blog too (I will be adding it to my favourites). I love this card, I have this stamp set so I might just have a go at recreating yours.
