Inkspiration Colour Challenge

I've joined in again with Makeesha's challenge. I love the inspiration picture - gorgeous bed linen!!

So here is my card. I've just gone with lighter colours and have used mainly the Designer Paper to make up the colour in the card.
The base is Whisper White to which I've layered some DP from Spring Silhoutte. Then I've added some strips of Soft Sky and Sahara Sand. On one of the strips of Soft Sky I've used the Scallop punch and then finished off with some taffeta ribbon.
The flower is a new stamp from the Summer mini catty - I couldn't resist trying it out. I've inked up in Versamark, then the Soft Sky ink and embossed. Then I've cut out and used a brad in the centre.
I've completed the card with a sentiment from 'So many Sayings' (hostess set) and some half pearls from the Pretties Kit.
It is a very simple card with not a lot of stampin', but the DP was just too pretty to cover up!

As I mentioned before, the flower is from a new set in the up-coming Summer Mini, to be released on Dec 1st. It has soooo many beautiful sets and lots of accessories that you will def. want to have. If you would like to have a catalogue, please send me an email so I can send one out to you.
