I love combining Bravo Burgundy and Creamy Caramel together for a rich look. This sketch design is from a previous sketch (SC75). Linen is stamped in Creamy Caramel on the bg and then French Script in Bravo Burgundy. The three strips on the large panel are Basic Grey Perhaps dp. Can you see the tiny pink crystals in the center of the small punched-out pink flowers? I like their sparkle IRL. The Best Blossom was stamped in Bravo Burgundy and lightly misted with water; I then masked it so I could stamp the leaves and smaller pink blossoms around it. The organdy ribbon is a strip of burgundy and pale pink tied together. I probably could've kept adding other little items to this, but I found myself happy with it as is.

this is lovely, charlene! i was thinking, this basic grey doesn't look familiar to me, and then i read that you cut it into strips. now, that's a great idea...and another option to give it another look. i'll have to remember that. thanks! anyway, i love your colors! great card!
