Another strange colour combo??

Well must admit when I saw the latest Kristina Werner colour challenge I said YES - Ruby Red is one of my favourite colours but I found it really hard using the colours without a green or a blue so this was a hard challenge for me - saying that I'm really happy with how my final card turned out.

This was the colour inspiration colours this week:


And my take on the challenge:

Stampin Up and One of a Kind
Stamp set: One Of A Kind
Paper: Whisper White, Pretty in Pink, Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Ruby Red, Pumpkin Pie
Other: Boho flowers punch, 1-3/8" square punch, Tangerine grosgrain ribbon, mini glue dots, dimensionals

Thanks for poppin' in!

Your card looks great Karen! I really like how you have used that flower trio punch. I have the stamp, but not the punch. I think I have to get it!

I love the "balance" of this card with the flowers... I would add too many flowers but you have it just right.
