JAI 156 Just add a colour combo

Hello there,
thankfully this weekend was a bit more relaxed than the last few - mostly. I did try my first zumba class - and survived - lol!  With no events planned I seized the chance to use some new stamping goodies, which is what I also did for this weeks Just Add Ink challenge. And this week we have a colour challenge for you.
How to mix these colours did take a bit of pondering.But I knew I needed a thank you card for a friend so that was the goal.

I was itching to play with my honeycomb folder so that came out, I rubbed some white ink over the embossing to bring the pattern out and then dripped and sprayed a shiny spray mist over it. The thanks went centre stage in a recessed oval accented with a flourish and some flowers. Some ribbon and buttons finish it all off. So sweet, CAS - my way that is and with lots of texture - love that!

Thanks for visiting,
