KW's colour challenge 15 – always fun

OK, you know the drill by now! – Kristina, colours, picture, make a card!...yay! This week's colours are choc chip, close to cocoa, really rust, certainly celery & white. Not really 'my colours' except for my beloved celery. Anyway, here's the inspiration pic:

& here's my card:

What's that set you say?....It's a newie called 'Always' from the Spring Mini' coming in August. I guarantee you're going to see more of this one. Oh, & how did I get it? - As a Demonstrator, I got to pre-order this month (yes, so cool, I know!). Why am I talking to myself? Well, it's 1 in the morning & I really should be in bed...clearly LOL :)

Just a few details, which may not be clear in the pic. The flowers & greeting were clear embossed with versamark on white card & then burnished with rust & celery ink & a sponge dauber. I punched them out with the 1 ¼ inch circle punch & mounted them with dimensionals on choc chip card. The spotty cocoa paper is from the Designer Prints series. Here's another pic to try to show the detail better....& I just like funny angles pics!

I'm really happy with it even though it didn't come out like my initial idea. I have another one almost done too, so I'll try to post that one tomorrow....or today I should say! Nightie night for now.

Supplies:
Stamps: Always
Card/Paper: close to cocoa, whisper white, cocoa designer prints paper
Ink: really rust, certainly celery, versamark
Accessories/Tools: clear embossing powder, heat gun, 1 ¼ inch circle punch, dimensionals
