Summer Silhouettes Hello for this week's Colour Me..! Challenge

by Joanne James30. July 2014 08:00

Good morning everyone - today I have my Design Team card for our challenge this week over at Colour Me...! where we are having a creative week where you get to choose your colour palette and which team you would like to play along with:

I am on 'Team Tara' this week so I'm working with Night of Navy, Soft Sky, Garden Green and a neutral (in my case, Whisper White). Here's my card:

I decided to use Soft Sky for my base and flowers, stamped and fussy-cut from the Summer Silhouettes stamp set, with Garden Green for the foliage and Night of Navy as my accent colour and for my statement 'hello' greeting - this is from the 'Hi There' stamp set - I think it's going to be a new favourite of mine. A smattering of pearls and a piece of retired grosgrain ribbon (you could substitute this with the new seam binding ribbon in the same colour) finish my card.

To see what the rest of the team have created in each of the colour schemes, stop by their blogs for inspiration and do play along with us at Colour Me this week!

I love your card, Joanne!  Summer Silhouettes is one of my very favorite stamp sets.  Pearls and ribbon are the perfect touch, too!  Beautiful card!  XX

It's one of my favourite sets too and I don't think I use it anywhere near enough! Your card inspired me to get it out and ink it up again, so thank you for that!
