color inspiration 32

Hello everyone! Kristina is back with a very warm, yummy color inspiration. This week's colors are Riding Hood Red, Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla and Whisper White. Since I don't have the new In-Colors, I opted to use Real Red instead of Riding Hood Red. The red background is embossed with clear embossing powder to give it some dimension and shine - I love that look. I guess this would be a retro card since I'm using retired paper and hardware, eh? The striped paper is from Dashing, which retired last January. Love that paper!

Have a Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends and I'll be back Friday with a fun new card to share.

stamps: season of joy, best yet (hostess)

paper: very vanilla, real red, sahara sand, and whisper white cardstock, dashing dsp
