Challenged

I'm not really one for doing challenges, I like to look but never take take part, but on my usual rounds of blog hopping I came across Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration #28. Kristina's blog is a fave of mine, I love her simple style and flare for colours and when I saw the colours for this week - well I had to have a go. I didn't have very much Pumpkin Pie cardstock but found a piece in my 'scrapbox' that was just enough to use as a teeny 3x3. I made the scalloped square from the border punch (see this post for tutorial), heat embossed the square frame (Frames with a Flourish) with white embossing powder and broke open the every so cute tin of felt Accents and Elements for the flowers. I have to hold my hands up and admit that the white flower brads aren't Stampin'Up (I generally only use SU! stuff on my blog) but they went so well with this dinky card I thought, oh well.

These colours are fab, love 'em, so I'm going to do another of the 3x3 box sets using them. Just need to get some more pumpkin pie....

Ta for looking,

Jo :)
