JAI 225 Just add a colour combo

Hello everyone,
did you get into the Christmas spirit last week? On the home front we are right in the midst of winter germs at the moment - no fun at all! But I have used some of the occasions I've been laid up on the couch to do some colouring which I've enjoyed. 

The challenge we have for you this week at Just Add Ink was perfect for it as this week we want you to Just Add a Colour Combo. Patrice came up with this very classy combination. Do check out the rest of the JAI DT for some stunning inspiration and join us in farewelling Susan who is leaving us to take on the exciting challenge of being on the SU! Artisan DT for the next year!

Really the star of this show is the flower - and while a grey rose sounds rather strange - I think it does look rather lovely! I added only a few supporting details the embossed panel, a sentiment tab, some background stamping, a button and some ribbon/twine. I do love my little details and can't resist adding a few or a lot!

Thanks for visiting,
