Inkspirations Colour Challenge #11 - Pocket Best Wishes

I really enjoyed creating this card for Makeesha's latest Inkspirations Colour Challenge; I was really challenged by these colours - I haven't used them together before.

Stamps: Best Wishes & More
Cardstock: Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery, Very Vanilla, Bashful Blue DSP (from Summer Picnic - retired)
Ink: Pumpkin Pie, VersaMark, Bashful Blue marker
Accessories: Die-cut Blooms, Earth Elements brads, Build-a-brad, word window punch, horizontal slot punch, corner rounder, dimensionals, paper piercer, mat pack, twill tape.

I stamped the greeting and bird onto the vanilla layer and punched the slot for the tag with my word window punch. I punched the celery layer before adhering them together and paper-piercing the edge. I added 'stitching' with my Bashful Blue marker. I assembled my tag and punched out a celery/bashful blue flower from the Summer Picnic DSP (retired) for the build-a-brad, which secures the twill tape. (The tag has 'Wishing you all this... and more!' stamped on it when you pull it out - again from the Best Wishes & More set). I assembled some flowers from the Die-cut Blooms pack to go with the flower image, which I inked up with Pumpkin Pie ink and my Bashful Blue marker. The leaves are stamped in VersaMark onto Certainly Celery cardstock and cut out. All the flowers, and the bird, are mounted on dimensionals. I have used some spotty Bashful Blue DSP and Pumpkin Pie cardstock for the base.

Hope you like it,
