Translated into Stampin' Up! colors:
So Saffron, Sahara Sand, Pumpkin Pie, Wild Wasabi
Then this is the card that I came up with using those colors:
It is fun doing these inspiration challenges because it makes me think outside my color combo box. It also shows that you can use ANYTHING as inspiration for your cards/artwork. Makes you start looking at things differently! :) Oh...and the big "thanks" on the card is glittery in real life. It doesn't show up so well in the picture! Sorry! All Supplies Stampin' Up!

I made a card with this layout at a Stampin' Up! meeting last year using now retired sets. I LOVED the layout so I had to make it fresh and current. And what's better than a pink and brown color combo, right?! :) So this is what was born. I actually swaped some of these at Leadership, so maybe you got one if you were there! :) All Supplies Stampin' Up!

I LOVE this Stamp set, all the images and sentiments. I LOVE the Scallop Punch and use it practically every day of my life in some fashion. I LOVE the new Afternoon Tea Papers in the Occassions Mini, and I LOVE the Chocolate Satin Ribbon (or any ribbon for that matter). So I decided to put them together and VOILA! This card was born. :) I embossed the flowers and then sponged around them to give it more dimension. All supplies Stampin' Up!
