Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration #17

It's been a pretty slow week - crafting wise - otherwise it's been hectic around here. I did have a few minutes this morning to make a card for Kristina's Color Inspiration #17.  The colors this week are very vintage, just like the dress she pulled them from.

Inspiration Colors:
Rose Red, Regal Rose, 
Sage Shadow and Whisper White

My card is pretty simple this time - shabby chic is what they call it I guess. I stamped the background flowers with my NEW SU Boho Backgrounds stamp set on and with Sage Shadow. I then layered the Regal Rose and the scalloped Rose Red strip (which I did with my NEW SU scallop punch - those who have it, don't ya just LOVE it!). I had initially used my white Unigel Pen (NEW too!) to put little dots on the scallops, but then I covered them up with the bling. I thought it gave it a little extra - what do you think? Finished it off with the white ribbon. 

It was fun to use all my NEW things on this card - Brad, if you are reading this, it really isn't that much NEW stuff - just needed NEW stuff.
