SCS Colour Challenge 170

I'm really enjoying taking part in the SCS colour challenges. Most challenges are colours that I wouldn't normally use or put together, so it's great to try different things out!! This weeks colours are: Real Red, Regal Rose & So Saffron and here are two cards.

This first card was really a quick and easy one to make up. I've layered the different coloured cardstock, So Saffron being the Designer Print. On the white, I've stamped randomly from Cause for Celebration stamp set (Hostess set), in the three colours. Then to soften the effect, I've layered some vellum over the top and fastened with So Saffron coloured brads. It's been completed with wide grosgrain in Regal Rose and the stamped sentiment 'wonderful' is from Wonderful Favourites.

This card starts off as a 10.5cm square card onto which I've added a 'topper'. I pulled out a stamp set, Like it a Latte, which I haven't used for so long. It will be a handy card to have in my stash for the many birthdays that come along!!
Again, I've used So Saffron DP. The coffee cup has been stamped in the different colours and I've added some sparkle to the heart with Dazzling Diamond glitter.
