Colour Challenge Number 12

I'm heading off to the Hunter Valley early tomorrow for the weekend with some friends (plenty of wine tasting to be done, and no kids!), so I thought I'd better get cracking and do Kristina's latest colour challenge before we go.

The colours are Sahara Sand, So Saffron, Whisper White and Wild Wasabi.
This was a quick one to make, and I took my inspiration from page 122 of our Aussie catalogue.
Marelle Taylor Stampin' Up! AustraliaI embossed the circles from "Priceless" with white embossing powder, and stamped various flowers from the priceless set in So Saffron and Wild Wasabi, and punched them out with the Bouquet Flower punch, and also used the 1/4" circle punch for some of the flower centres. The sentiment is a rub-on, and the brads are silver that have been coated in White embossing powder. To do this, just heat up the brad, so the powder will stick to it (hold them with tweezers so you don't burn your fingers!) then dip it in white Embossing powder, and re-heat to melt the powder. Voila!
Some paper piercing and Wild Wasabi double-stitched ribbon finish it off. The main piece has also been raised up on Dimensionals, and so have the little flowers. I don't know if you can see it in the photo, but I've also scored a border on the white cardstock, to frame the main piece. It adds an elegant touch, and makes the white not so plain.
