Bold Midnight Curry Flowers
I got my layout inspiration from the sketch over at Freshly Made Sketches and combined that with some color inspiration from Pals Paper Arts. I love the bold colors together--Crushed Curry, Midnight Muse, and Early Espresso. I stamped some flowers from the Flower Shop stamp set randomly and then layered that panel onto Midnight Muse and Early Espresso card stock. I wanted to add more of the Crushed Curry color, so I textured a strip of it with the Petals-a-Plenty embossing folder and added that to the card. I didn't want to overdo the bold colors, so I used a big panel of white on top of my Midnight Muse card base, that way I could also stamp my greeting from Sweet Essentials (using Early Espresso ink) without having to add another layer for the text. To "tie" the card all together, I added some of my favorite 3/8" stitched satin ribbon in Midnight Muse. Happy Monday!
