KWerner's Color Inspiration #52

From Adriel:

So I had some thank you cards to make for my recent birthday and I saw Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration Challenge #52 was up, so I decided to use those colors for a couple of thank you cards. In addition, I had to get some stamping in before I head out of town on Tuesday with my husband for the Tropical Smoothie Cafe roadshow. We own the location in Tempe (@ Priest & Warner)... if you're ever in the neighborhood, stop by for a delicious smoothie! Okay, enough of the commercial, onto my card! =)

These colors are so "vacation". (I think I have vacation on my brain or something!) Really, they look like the Caribbean or the islands or something. Really refreshing colors! =) My card was inspired by THIS CARD, although it didn't turn out looking anything like it at all. I just loved how she used the flower from the Wow Flower set in different colors as the main focal point. I decided to do the same. =)

If you are interested in the supplies I used...

Wow Flowers set
Fundamentel Phrases set

Sahara Sand CS
More Mustard CS
So Saffron CS
Whisper White CS

So Saffron ink
More Mustard ink
Baja Breeze ink
More Mustard Stampin' Write marker
Corner Rounder punch
Paper Piercer

Pretty simple card... I tried a technique I saw HERE on Studio Calico's blog about pleating card stock. I think it's a fun addition. =)
Thank you so much for looking! I may have a couple of posts on here this week (thanks to post scheduling), but I'll be out of town until Friday, but my mom will be here (taking care of my kiddos!) You all have a great week! =)

I like how your re-intepreted the original card and used the color challenge combo. I have this stamp set but I haven't used the asterik image much. Definitely will have case your card.

Those stamps are too cute! The colors you stamped with match the color inspiration perfectly! Great job :)

Super Cute!!!!! Love the layout and how you were inspired by the other card you saw. I'm not totally inspired by yours and think I might need to ink up my Wow Flowers :-)

Love your paper piercing and fun bold flowers. I haven't used that set at all and now I am rethinking that LOL! Fabulous job with the color challenge.

It's a good life!
