CC168 Fresh Cuts



Finally - I had a quite moment to post my card I have made for the Color Combo Challenge.

The colors for today are - Chocolate Chip, Sage Shadow and Very Vanilla. It is a beautiful combo!!!

Of course I'm stuck on the new Fresh Cuts Set....and I think it really works wonderful with this Sketch too!!!

I have trimmed the image a little bit to make it fit better. I have started out with making Very Vanilla my base. Then I have added a big Chocolate Chip CS and a smaller piece of Sage Shadow on the bottom. The image was inked in Chocolate Chip and I debated if I should color the flowers inside or not and - I just left it plain....Next, I have layered the image onto Sage Shadow and raised it with Stampin Dimensionals, but first I have added the super yummy Chocolate Chip Satin Ribbon. Then I have stamped the *for you* sentiment in the right hand corner and added the medium Silver Brads from Making Memories.

Just in case you have ever wondered - the *Medium* Brads are a little bit bigger then the regular Brads....and they stand out more too...!!!
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out my *Be Inspired* card for today's BIC challenge it's posted right below - let me know what you think?!!!?

Wonderful card. I will use the color combo and layout for Fathers Day cards. Will substitute the stamped image with a large vintage style antique Model T stamp from the retired set Antique Autos.
Thanks for the inspiration!
