Inkspiration Colour Challenge #32

Hey everyone, hope you are having a great Friday.  The Inkspiration Challenge for this week includes these gorgeous colours - aren't they lovely:
And here's my card:

I've always loved the Oh So Lovely stamp set by Stampin'Up - the flowers are so elegant and pretty.  So with this image that I've coloured with Copic markers, I've added lots of layers of cardstock in the different colours including some white dotted paper in the So Saffron.  I've made an arrangement of doilies and lace trim, then added some ribbon and a rose tied to the end.
Here's a closer look:


I enjoyed these colours so much that I whipped up this scrapbook page using this wonderful picture of my niece Amber - it was just taken the other week when we met up with her family on holidays!

I changed the tones of the photo to B+W.
I've used lots of goodies from my Etsy store as well as other embellishments from my stash: heart lace, lace flower, chocolate felt flower, Martha Stewart butterfly punch, pink rose.
I love how this page turned out - makes me realise how much I really enjoy scrapbooking, especially working with my hand-made goodies.  I'm hoping to share alot more scrapbook LO's very soon!
Here's a closer look:


Well, I hope you've enjoyed my inspirations for this colour challenge - I'm sure you agree these colours are just gorgeous together - I hope you will play along!
You can view the details over at Makeesha's website and see her inspiration too.
Be sure to check out the Design Team work - I'm sure their creations will all be beautiful:

Hi Chantelle,
love them both but the scrap page would have to be my favourite. You do a fabulous job of layering all the different textures!

Beautiful job with the colours - love the scrapbook page especially - but that's maybe because I am in awe of people who can scrap - LOL
