color inspiration 28

This week's color challenge from Kristina is Pumpkin Pie, Ruby Red, Sage Shadow (which is making quite the comeback!) and Whisper White. She always finds the greatest colors, so that keeps me from using pink and brown all the time, ha! Go over and check out her blog if you haven't had a chance - she's an amazing artist and you won't be disappointed.
This card was pretty quick to make - the scallop edge punch is a lifesaver! No more tedious punching with the corner rounder to make a scallop edge - yay! The sentiment was heat embossed with white embossing powder to make it show up brighter on the darker paper.
Have a fantastic Wednesday and I'll see you back here tomorrow afternoon.
