Burgundy + Gold + Plum
Post number three for today... For this card, I was inspired by this week's challenge over at The Play Date Cafe - PDCC114. The challenge is to use the color combo Burgundy, Gold and Plum. I would have never thought to combine these colors but I think they work awesome together! Here is the inspiration The Play Date Cafe provided:
After post one and two today, I checked the mail and I received a grab bag of stamps from Gina K. Designs that I won in a challenge this past week! What an awesome assortment of stamps! It's funny, I have quite a few sets from Gina K and not one was a duplicate of something I have :) My favorite stamp from the grab bag is definitely the stamp I used on my card. It's from Lovely Labels 2 by Nina Brackett. I stamped it in Memento Sweet Plum onto ivory card stock. Then, using a stamp-a-ma-jig (because I am no good at centering without it), added the congratulations sentiment from Gina K. Designs - Inside and Out. I don't own this shape of Nestabilities, so I cut the label out by hand. The plum and burgundy background papers are from my scrap bin - maker unknown. The Fleur de Lis border was added with a border punch from ek success. To finish my card (and incorporate my gold), I added some left over metallic holiday ribbon that I purchased at Target this past season, some gold ball accents, and a gold heart button that I had in my stash.
This is probably my last post of the evening, but I will be back tomorrow!
