ILWS - Colour Combo Challenge 17

Today is Colour Combo Challenge day over at In Love With Stamping. The challenge is make something using Old Olive, Pumpkin Pie & So Saffron. I decided to make my own designer paper, using a stamp from the set A Beautiful Thing. This is my first attempt at this and I really liked how it turned out. I decided to cut the paper into sections to make more than one card. Using the three colours I created this card first.

The designer paper is layered onto So Saffron card then onto Pumpkin Pie. Old Olive Grossgrain ribbon was then tied around the layers. The Pumpkin Pie layer was then attached to the Old Olive base card. I decided to use some of the Flower Fusion's centred on the bow, attaching them with a So Saffron brad. These felt flowers are so beautiful, the felt is really thick and the flowers keep their shape well. But then, you wouldn't expect any less with Stampin' Up! would you...LOL.

As I had some designer paper left I decided to make another card, same colours just changed the combination of layers a little and used Pumpkin Pie ribbon.

Thanks for looking...
