What do you think of the color combo I used? Night of Navy, Pumpkin Pie and Cherry Cobbler. I found it in SU's Color Coach and certainly not one that I would have ever put together on my own. It's good to challenge yourself once in a while...don't you think?
Anyway, the flowers are stamped with Craft Night of Navy ink onto Very Vanilla cs and embossed with Iridescent Ice Emboss Powder. I stamped the hangy-downy-things with Cherry Cobbler ink, added the scalloped strip of Cherry Cobbler cs and adhered it to the Pumpkin Pie card base. I stamped the sentiment and finished it off by adding the teeny, tiny pearls.
When I sat back and looked at the card, I shrieked because that's when I noticed my Night of Navy fingerprints on the Very Vanilla panel! Oh no! What's a girl to do? Throw it away? Heck no! Embellish it? Heck yes! So that's when I pulled out my trusty Itty Bitty Punch Pack and added the three Cherry Cobbler flowers to hide those nasty fingerprints. Phew!
Man, that's a lot of gibberish for a CAS card. Guess I'm feelin' a little chatty today.

Funny story about the inky fingers and adding embellishments. Looks like you planned it that way. As for the color combo, never would have put it together myself either...but it looks great. Yay color coach!

Regina, what a cool color combo. I would have NEVER thought of it either. I have been using my color coach more and more too :-) I like your hanging thingies...I have never known how to use that stamp. The boo boo punched flowers look great as do the tiny pearls on your sentiment....whew....looks like I am chatty too my friend :-) TFS

I don't know how you mixed those colors together, but it sure rocks! I LOVE that stamp set and your little added flowers and bling sure take it up a notch and still keep it CAS. Woo Hoo, luvin' this one!
