This week at Just Add Ink, Delys has come up with an awesome colour combo for us to use on our cards/scrapbook pages:

I was tempted to make a masculine card with these colours, but am in need of "happy anniversary" cards at the moment, so decided to make a rather rustic-looking anniversary card.

Using the shaving foam technique, that I've latched on to a bit of late, I created a background panel with Lucky Limeade, Night of Navy (as I don't have Midnight Muse - must rectify that!) and Crumb Cake re-inkers. 

Stamps: Easy Events, Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Card: Crumb Cake, Lucky Limeade, Midnight Muse, Whisper White
DSP: Print Poetry Designer Series Paper stack
Ink: Midnight Muse stampin' pad, Crumb Cake stampin' pad, marker and re-inker, Lucky Limeade stampin' pad, marker and re-inker, Night of Navy re-inker
Other: 2 1/2" Circle punch, Perfect Pennants Bigz die, Midnight Muse stitched satin ribbon, Crumb Cake taffeta ribbon, Lucky Limeade ruffled ribbon, sponge daubers, Stamp-a-ma-jig, glue dots, shaving foam
The rest of the Design Team at Just Add Ink have come up with some great creations for this colour challenge.  We'd love to have you play along with us!
