A new color challenge for me

Hi everyone! OK, so I have heard about Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration challenges for some time now and never found my way to her blog. BUT, all that has changed -LOL! I followed a link and finally found her blog! AND I made time today to play along!

This week's Color Inspiration #55 colors were: Really Rust, More Mustard, Cream and Basic Gray. WHA??? I immediately thought of Basic Grey's Ambrosia pad. Yep, PERFECT match! The inspiration for this card came from my bloggin' friend Muriel and this totally cute card. I saw her diagonal trim piece and saved it in my brain for future use!! Thanks Muriel!

The sentiment is from Verve's Sweet on You set - I love using this sentiment with colorful cards! The large gray button is vintage from my granny's tin and the other 2 are from my stash from Pinkhedgehog Papercrafts (as is the burlap string). See that yummy trim? Oh, it's from Prima and I love it! Linz is out of stock right now, send her an email if you want her to order some more!!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
