JAI 177 Just add a colour combo

Hello there,
well for a change we have survived the week germ free - a very pleasant change I can tell you! and probably for you too after weeks of hearing about them - lol! I had a lot of fun cracking out some new rubber for this weeks Just Add Ink challenge. This week we want you to add a colour combo - and it just lovely!
I had to take a small(ish) colour liberty as I had no DSP in Smokey Slate and I was determined to paper piece this fabulous dahlia with DSP so I dug through my stocks to find some in Basic Grey as a substitute. Here's the outcome.

More shabby chic my way and I loved doing every itsie bitsie detail - very therapeutic ;) It'll be hard to part with this one as I do love it so! I even broke open my artisan's kit from the previous seasonal catalogue to add the lace - it was worth over ruling my hoarding instincts to do so ;) OK enough gushing! Do go and check out the rest of the DT for some beautiful inspiration for using these colours and have a go yourself and join us.

  1. I love this card Kim. I love all the various elements and especially that paper pieced dahlia. Have a great weekend.

  2. Every itsie bitsie detail is just lovely Kim! Your flower looks amazing! I'm glad I wasn't the only one hoarding that ribbon - I haven't used mine either.

  3. This is breathtakingly beautiful, Kim!! I love how you've stamped the dahlia beneath the sentiment, but most of all I just LOVE the paper-pieced feature flower. Stunning.

  4. That is some awesome paper piecing Kim, it looks amazing! Love the lace wheel beneath the lace trim and all of the other details as well....A beautiful card! xxx

  5. Kim, this Dahlia looks amazing in all these colours.
