Burgundy, Pink, and Cream

Colour Create Time again! Seems like the last challenge just started, and we are already on to a new one. The colours this week were chosen by the lovely and talented Dena - Burgundy, Pink, and Cream.

Isn't that a cool inspiration photo? Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp. Please head over there and check out their fabulous selection of products! You can get details about the prize at Colour Create.

And, here is my card:

I found this cute little set of Hero Arts stamps that included 2 little Asian dolls and one stamp that was a thank you message. So I used the thank you stamp with Papertey Ink Scarlet Jewel ink and made a background on a piece of pink cardstock - you can see the thank you messages peaking through the spaces on the burgundy paper. I also stamped the flowers with the same background.

For the doll, flowers, and burgundy background, I used images from the Cricut Pagoda cartridge. I welded the bamboo screen image to a frame. The screen image had all of the spaces that I wanted so that the thank you messages would show through

The "thanks so much" sentiment is from Papertrey Ink Mega Mixed Messages, also stamped in Scarlet Jewel ink. I inked all of the edges with Scarlet Jewel as well. And I added the fancy little jewel embellishments to the flowers.

If you get a chance, please head on over to all of the other design team members blogs. They all have some beautiful creations to share with you!

Thanks for stopping by!
