JAI 204 Just add a colour combo

Hello there, 
we have a great colour combo from Nikki for you at Just Add Ink this week. I love that it includes gold. I'm really enjoying adding touches of gold to my work at the moment as it adds such a lush richness. Here's the colour combo. 

And here is what I came up with.

Ooooooo the sheer delight to play with new stuff - it took a while but I finally managed to get my hands on some new SU! product. In fact I even had this card completed bar the "Oh Happy Day" sentiment panel so I was very happy when my box arrived! (I might note here I made this card a few weeks back as my Feb schedule was kind of crazy - so I'm not as deprived as I sound - lol!). 

You could say I got carried away with gold sequins, but I rather like it, the white polka dots were just calling out for something and I like how they echo the gold circle frame for the sentiment. And to be honest once in a while its kind of fun to get a little carried away ;) A little gold rolled rose and some delightful ruffled ribbon finish it all off. 

This is a lovely soft but rich colour combo so do join us this week and don't forget to visit the rest of the DT for some wonderful ideas.

Thanks for visiting,

  1. All your sequins are cool. All your touches of gold are so elegant and I love your sponging xx

  2. Totally gorgeous Kim! Such lovely details and perfect balance of the colours....That sweet little gold rose is adorable! xxx

  3. I love all your gold sequins, such a clever way to use the colour challenge. Love the inside of your card too. I think I must be the only person who doesn't have this stamp set...I'm trying to resist x

  4. A beautiful card and I love how you have decorated the inside. Just realised as I was viewing and commenting on DT cards that you and Christine used the same greeting and yet your cards are both beautifully different. Great inspiration for others with the same greeting.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment!
