Kristina Color Inspiration #55



Happy Monday! Here's a little card for
Kristina's Color Inspiration #55. This was a tough one! I made the card below first, but I wasn't totally thrilled, so I tried again and liked the one above better! lol! I used American Crafts stamps and a lot of Basic Gray for this one.


This one below I tried to stick truer to the inspiration piece, by using mostly cream and rust (Dusty Durango here), with some gray and just a tad of mustard. It seemed a little blah, so I added some Dazzling Diamonds to the flowers, but I think I added too much?



That's it for now, chicas! Have a great Monday! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!

That first card is a cutie! I really like the sentiment in an oval frame! The second card is my fave of the two. Wow! What a beautiful color, you perfected the color challenge. Love the ribbon, button and torn out sentiment. Love the dazzling diamonds too, it's a really nice touch.
