New colour combinations.....

Right, I should really get a shift on with my Retreat Makes photos as both Paige and Sam are putting me to shame by having their uploaded already. That'll teach me to put all my LOs in my albums before remembering to photograph them.

In the mean time, I was inspired yesterday by a card I saw on the lovely Vicky's blog using the new Greenhouse Gala DSP from Stampin' Up! Since this paper arrived I have been at a loss to know what to do with it. Then I saw Vicky's gorgeous card and I fell in love with the potential of the papers. I went straight home to recreate the card (with a slight Stampin' Sarah modification due to a lack of Marina Mist cardstock).

The colour scheme for this card is: Marina Mist, Cajun Craze and Pumpkin Pie. The stamping of the 'Thank You' was Early Espresso. When I see designs like this one of Vicky's I begin to really understand the idea behind the Colour Renovation. These colours are so stunning together and make so much sense. I am really beginning to enjoy discovering all the new colour combos. Roll on convention and getting to see so many other new ideas and swaps.
