Colour Inspiration Challenge 13

Wow, Kristina's new challenge is here already. I didn't have time to try last week's so I was excited to see it. The colours are purely pomegranate, regal rose, river rock, wild wasabi & whisper white & here's the gorgeous inspiration picture...

I was inspired by the crisp green & white border & the lovely cushions, but before I waffle any more, here's my card:
The base is river rock. I attached a strip of wasabi card , a strip of whisper white card repeat stamped with the flourish from 'Carte Postale' in wild wasabi ink & then some wide regal rose grosgrain ribbon. For the motif, I stamped the 'Baroque Motifs square image in wasabi ink & large flower in pomegranate ink on white card, cut them out & mounted them with dimensionals on a square of regal rose card. For some extra luxury, I added a half pearl from the Pretties Kit to the centre of the flower. Finally, I stamped the wonderful friend greeting from 'Boho Backgrounds' in wild wasabi ink.


I really liked this combination. Hope you do too.

Supplies
Stamps: Carte Postale, Baroque Motifs, Boho Backgrounds
Card: river rock, wild wasabi, regal rose, purely pomegranate, whisper white
Ink: wild wasabi, purely pomegranate, regal rose
Accessories: Half pearl (Pretties Kit)
