Kristina's Colour Challenge

Even though I love these colours, I thought they would be challenging to place together so I had my first try at Kristina's colour inspiration challenge this weekend. I am not sure what possessed me to make a baby card with them but guess it was the Bashful Blue and So Saffron that persuaded me!

The base card is So Saffron with an embossed Old Olive strip and then the Striped ribbon. The lower section is stamped with a stamp from Boho Backgrounds [love this set] The bigger scallop circle is Not Quite Navy and the the SU scallop punch is used for the smaller circle. I have pieced the little ship from Nursery Necessities - the spotted paper is from the SU DS paper Jersey Shore [yum!!]

Love the card Jean. The colours work fantastically well, especially the little polka dot sail. I'd be interested to know what did you use for the larger scalloped circle?

Jean said...

Hi stampmeshell, For the larger scalloped circle, I used a Marvy scalloped punch. These punches come in various sizes and shapes. Or you could use the Nestabilities dies through a die cut machine. HTH. Feel free to email me if you want to know more! Thank you for your kind words! Jean
