Inkspiration Colour Challenge

If you would love to join in with great challenges, go over to Makeesha's website to see a great colour challenge for this week. Here are the colours we had to work with.
And here is my creation with these fabulous colours.
For my card today, I gained inspiration from a card made by Kirsty, at Kirsty's Cards n' Scrapping.
It was this card and her other fabulous creations using this stamp, that made me really want to have it too It's Organic Outline and I just love it.
I've started off with a base card in Always Artichoke, then added a layer of Mellow Moss.
Then onto the Very Vanilla, I've stamped up the two images as shown. Then I've put the cardstock thru my Cuttlebug using the Leaf folder. I've sponged over the cardstock to give some definition to the embossing. I've also paper pierced around the peice of Vanilla cardstock.
I've put a piece of Rose Red cardstock behind this which has been made pretty with the eyelet broder punch.
I've also used the two other images in this set, the sentiment and flower to finish off the card as embellishments. And I've added some Mellow Moss ribbon to finish it off.
Here is a close up so you can see the embossing a little better. Thanks for some great colours Keesh, this was fun!

Hi Chantelle,
That is a lovely card. From the catalogue I wouldn't have picked that stamp set, but your card (& Kirsty's) makes me want it.
Thanks for leaving the first ever comment on my blog, very exciting!
