More Summer Silhouettes

I do love this set from Stampin' Up and am so glad I finally caved in and bought it. This card is for Just Add Ink's Challenge #171 for the sketch and for ColourQ's Challenge #195 for this lovely combo. I wasn't sure about this one at first, but it's such a soft colour palette and the colours work really well together, even though I would never have put them together myself.

And here's my card. I did have to cut the Pool Party flowers out and layer them over the leaves as they just didn't stand out enough. I should have masked them really but I was just building it up as I went along and hadn't thought that far ahead!


Stamps: Summer Silhouettes from Stampin' Up, Background Basics: Chevron Stripes, Flower Fusion #4 both from Papertrey Ink

Papers: Summer Starfruit, Basic Gray, Whisper White all from Stampin' Up

Inks: Summer Starfruit, Basic Gray, Pool Party, Orchid Opulence all from Stampin' Up

Accessories: Summer Starfruit Stitched Satin Ribbon, Corner Rounder Punch both from Stampin' Up, Decorative Labels 8 from Spellbinders

And that's all from me for this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!
