Stamping 411 Color Inspiration 160

I noticed this color inspiration at Stamping 411 this morning and thought what a pretty color combination.

My neutral card base is whisper white card stock with the main image stamped using the three challenge colors and added three strips of card stock also using the challenge colors.

Don't know why, but Pacific Point paper photographs much darker than it is in real life and the stamped ink much lighter, maybe I didn't use enough pressure on the ink pad or maybe it's my photography!

I then punched three little flowers and just had to tucked a little pearl in the center of each for a bit of elegance and popped them up on the challenge colors. The sentiment is stamped in Pear Pizzazz and that finishes my card for the challenge.

Supplies: All Stampin' Up

Card stock: Pacific Point, Pear Pizzazz, Tempting Turquoise and whisper white
Stamps: Medallion and Happy Greetings
Inks: Pacific Point, Pear Pizzazz and Tempting Turquoise

Thanks for taking a peek at my blog, would love to hear your comments regarding this card.

This is FABULOUS Mom! Love the way you've used the challenge colors on the Medallion stamp and perfectly balanced them with the strips on the right. GREAT layout to this card and the sweet little flowers are adorable!
