Colour Create Time

Its Colour Create Time everyone! Janny has chosen a fabulous combination of colours: red, black, off-white, with an optional silver/pewter. Here is an inspiration photo:

And Whimsy Stamps is sponsoring this challenge with a fantastic prize.  Please head on over to Colour Create for details on the prize.  And if you get a chance, hop over to Whimsy Stamps - they have an awesome selection of products!

Here is my card for this challenge:

I am so pleased with the simple elegance of this card!  The stars and sentiment are from the Papertrey Ink Star Prints set.  The swirls are from Papertrey Ink Fancy Flourishes.  Below is a close-up of the stars.  They have the most amazing details.  I stamped the stars with a clear embossing ink and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  I stamped the swirls in a silver pigment ink and then heat embossed with silver embossing powder.

Please head over to the other Design Team members blogs.  As usual, these ladies have out-done themselves:

Thanks so much for Looking!
