It's challenge time again at Just Add Ink, and this week brings a gorgeous colour combo that Mae selected from Stampin' Up!'s Color Coach:

I created a background panel for my card by stamping Delicate Doilies images, in all three colours, on Whisper White card.  I LOVE how these colours work together!  The flourish, and a sentiment, from Happy Day were stamped with a little doily from Delicate Doilies, and die cut using a heart framelit and my Big Shot.  Some new ribbon - chevron and seam binding - and scattered rhinestones, and my card was finished.  I think this would make a really nice contemporary engagement or wedding card, or a birthday card ... what do you think?

Stamps: Delicate Doilies, Happy Day
Card: Soft Sky, Smoky Slate, Whisper White
Ink: Soft Sky, Smoky Slate and Calypso Coral stampin' pads
Other: Hearts Framelits, Stamp-a-ma-jig, sponge dauber, Smoky Slate chevron ribbon, Soft Sky seam binding, Basic Rhinestones, glue dots
This colour challenge has produced some gorgeous creations from the rest of the Just Add Ink Design Team - be sure to check them out!  We hope you will play along with the challenge, too.
