Colour Challenge #23 -Take 1

Marelle Taylor Stampin' Up! AustraliaI decided to dust off my 'Heartfelt Thanks' set for this one. Like a lot of demos, I got this set in my Starter Kit, loved it, used it to death, and then haven't used it since!
This is one of those cards that just didn't turn out how I saw it in my head. I must say, I really don't like Bravo Burgundy!! I think I'd quite like this card in some different colours!
I've stamped on Naturals Ivory. I did some 2-step stamping, and added some leaves and dots with my Markers. The greeting is from "So Many Sayings", punched out with the Word Window punch, and a Pumpkin Pie eyelet added. The ribbon is Old Olive Wide grosgrain, which my camera has turned a bit fluoro!
As soon as I made this card, I knew I wanted to try the challenge again. I just didn't feel I did the colours justice (darn that Bravo Burgundy!)

  3. I like this one best Marelle but I think it is due in part to the set. I've always liked this flower style. And in the photo Bravo Burgundy looks like Chocolate Chip. That green ribbon is pretty bright isn't it? Good to see the KD challenges happening again. Love KimT

  6. I don't like B Burgundy either. I like this card and this may seem silly but the "dots" really POP! :)

  8. I love how this turned out! I too have used my heartfelt thanks stamp set to death and then haven't used it since. I think it is about time. LOL!

  9. They are both terrific as always, Marelle, you have such a talent. Love the design of number two, but have to admit number one is my personal fave. Love burgundy!
