**SBS21 Challenge #2 ~~~ Smokey Plum - Honey - New England Ivy




~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
I chose 3 colors that I could NOT imagine using together before I even thought about what I was going to create. At first, I decided to make a scrap page layout....but after spending too much time thinking "what should I do with these colors?!"..... my creative juices went towards creating a card. I've been wanting to use my September stamp of the month anyway.....So......Here's my card using some unusual colors (for me, that is). All supplies used are Close To My Heart products .....
  • CTMH Sept. SOTM, Treasure Life #D1306

  • Colonial card stock

  • Garden Green card stock

  • Smokey Plum ink

  • New England Ivy ink

  • Honey ink

  • Autumn Harvest ribbon round purple


Please leave me a post & let me know what you think of my color combo & card.
Thanks bunches for looking. ;-)

Now THAT is beautiful!!!! Love those colors! I have never been a fan of purple and golds or yellows together but you certainly pulled it off! And isn't the Sept. SOTM just one of the best stamp sets CTMH has ever come out with!!!????!!! Nice job, can I scraplift or at least use you for inspiration, please?

These colour go beautifully together. I love the plum any ivy together but the Honey just lifts the card to a different level.
The stamps are wonderful as is the sentiment.
Superb card, Barbara.
