Favourite Colour Combo

Afternoon all and welcome. 
This is a post to remind you of the ongoing challenge over at STAMPlorations. This month you can choose either our theme of your favourite colour combo or use the sketch. For this post I went with the theme, using purple and green and just a little bit of sparkle.

A really quick card that in reality took me ages, as I couldn't decide on my layout. There were a lot of coloured and cut out flowers that didn't make it onto the final card! In the end I went pretty CAS, just using a strip of sparkly purple card and some purple Stickles on the stamens.
I used one of the blooms from Dee's Artsy Impressions Blooming Buds and some of the foliage stamps coloured with Copics then fussy cut. The frame was cut using Sizzix Ornate Label #2 dies and mounted up on pads. The sentiment is a Happy Birthday sentiment from Woodware plus a phrase from the Noteworthy set.

OK, now the details of this month's challenge.

  • You can now link up to 6 entries.
  • You can enter a project based on the theme, the sketch, or both.
  • Non-STAMPlorations products on projects are OK

  • Winner voted by the design team receives a $15 gift certificate or choice of two (2) standard-size (5x7) ARTplorations stencils if there are STAMPlorations products used; if the winning project doesn't have a STAMPlorations product, winner receives a $10 gift certificate or choice of one (1) standard-size (5x7) ARTplorations stencil.
  • Top picks voted by the design team each receive a $5 gift certificate or choice of 2 digis
  • 1 winner randomly drawn from entries that have STAMPlorations products (stamps and/or stencils) receives a stamp & stencil pack or $10 gift certificate
  • Winner and top picks invited to be guest designers in the December Challenge.
