Kristina's Color Inspiration #31

I really enjoy doing Kristina's challenge each week, the colours she picks are always such a great mix. I'd like to think I have an eye for colour myself but it's so much easier to design a card when the colour combo is done for you, I guess that's why I like doing them. Last weeks didn't get uploaded in time for the deadline as the weather was pretty rubbish and I couldn't get a decent photo being it was in fairly muted colours. Still, here's this weeks... back to the brighter colours and I DO, *do bright* so I don't find it too difficult.
It's a tri-fold card (I think that's what they call them) and I've used the gorgeous large swirly stamp from 'Baroque Motifs' in versamark on the inside, and the white embossed sentiment from 'A Bit of Birthday Cheer' on the front. I'm back to using the felt 'Accents & Elements' with non SU! brads again....eek! The brads by the way are made by Papermania and you can find the small one's here and the larger one here.
Everything else I've made this week is for either a workshop on Thursday or for Jake's school Christmas Fair which isn't until the 5th December, but time is flying and I know it'll be here before I know it. I did think I was pretty organised but I've just realised I've forgotten to make my own cards to send....oops! I will make a start next week, along with 30 bags of Snowman Poop....oh and some teachers gifts... OH CRUMBS! I'd better get cracking......!!!
Be back soon,
Jo :)
