Fresh and Bold

Happy Thursday! I have card today that uses a fresh and bold colour combination that I'm just smitten with. I was inspired by the Card Concept challenge and their gorgeous inspiration photo. The colours, pillows, and pops of grey (which I interpreted as silver) caught my eye.

The background was created by masking off part of the white cardstock panel, and stencilling with the Texture Rhapsody (retired, but linked is a similar one) Memory Box stencil and dye inks. Reverse Confetti's Bitty Banner stamp and coordinating die cut were used for the sentiment. Lots of stitching detail and a few silver sequins finish it off. I am definitely going to use this colour combo again!

I followed Freshly Made Sketches #272 for the layout of my card. What a fun sketch!
