KS Inspired Blooms

This week's ColourQ challenge is a fun Kate Spade inspired challenge! The snow kept us inside again yesterday, so I thought I'd create a card.

I love this color combo, especially because I almost got this bracelet for my sweet friend, Rebecca a while back. I settled on the silver color combination, because she doesn't wear much gold, but I'm kind of wishing I had gotten this one for myself. Anyway, on to the card...

When I was pulling out these colors from my cardstock stash, I felt like I was making some kind of yummy dessert. Blackerry Bliss and Raspberry Ripple - Yum! 


I stamped some bold blooms from Flower Fest with some VersaMark ink on Blackberry Bliss, Raspberry Ripple and Wisteria Wonder Cardstock then embossed them with Gold Stampin' Emboss Powder. I used the same mum flower image and cut them to different sizes and layered them with Stampin' Dimensionals. I also stamped and embossed the sentiment from Because You Care on a crisp white piece of cardstock. I matted my white on some Raspberry Ripple and then adhered everything to a Blackberry Bliss card. These colors are so pretty together!

Computer settings are so weird because this card looks so much brighter on screen than it does in real life. If the colors look neon to you, I apologize!
