Hey There - Colour INKspiration Challenge #141


Hello crafty friends!  Welcome and thanks for popping in.  Today I've got a card for you which was created for the Colour INKspiration Challenge #141.  For this challenge we were given the colours Very Vanilla, Basic Black, Gold and one of the retiring 2021-2023 In Colours (Fresh Freesia, Polished Pink, Pale Papaya, Soft Succulent or Evening Evergreen).  As well as the chosen colour combination Basic White and neutrals to your project. We also allow ‘Ivory’, ‘Bronze’ and ‘Natural Tones’ in the Stampin’ Blends. If you don’t have all the colour palette, feel free to use the closest SU substitute (ie: Pumpkin Pie instead of Calypso Coral … you get the drift).

Our inspiration photo was chosen by fabulous Crew Member, Jan Clothier and our Guest Designer is the lovely Yvonne Spikmanns Van Bruggan.  I can't wait to go and see what everyone has created.

The card I've created features the Conversation Bubble Dies and I've teamed it with the Charmed Sentiments stamp set for the greeting.The background paper comes from the Enjoy The Journey 12 x 12 papers and mounted with Black Dimensionals onto a Basic Black card base.  The inside of the card was finished by adding a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock with a small strip of the paper glued to the bottom.

I must stay that the Conversation Bubbles Bundle is one of those sets that you can keep quite casual for someone with a younger birthday or you could do something like this and dress it up quite elegantly for an occasion that's a little more special.  Not to mention everything in between.
