Kristina's challenge #15

Here is my card for Kristina's Challenge this week. The colour combo this time was Chocolate Chip, Close to Cocoa, Certainly Celery, Really Rust and Whisper White. Really really lovely colours but I am not so happy with this card -maybe I have used too much green.

Still it was nice to have a go at this combo - I really enjoy the challenges so much. I am in the middle of making cards for our team swap and it has been quite fun making them as well.

The Stampin' Up! stamp sets used for this card were Sanded Background, Boho backgrounds and True Friend. I have used the wide gros grain Chocolate Chip ribbon as well.

Fabulous layout! Your card is gorgeous. This was the first set I thought of for the challenge, but didn't go with it. Very Pretty.

Lovely use of the colors Jean - it really came out beautifully!!! (I always say - the more green the better!) I love your card - the background stamp is awesome - it really gives the card such dimension!! I just nominated you for an award - come over and check it out when you have a chance!!!
Best wishes to you always,

Jean, You did a great job! I think I need to get that Sanded background stamp. I see it everywhere I go, and think it really 'makes' a card!

Love love love everything about it Jean.... Feels like a winner to me. Would love to case it too if that's OK.
