Vintage Vogue


I wanted to play in today's SCS color challenge but had a lot of trouble getting the right balance with the required colors of Crushed Curry, Bravo Burgundy, and Basic Gray. I used a sheet of the Curry patterned paper from the Welcome Neighbor pattern pack from the Sale-A-Bration catalog. I stamped and cut out the flowers (a bit of Pretty In Pink mixed in with the Burgundy), added some Fire rhinestone brads and popped them up a bit on the Whisper White panel that was stamped with the vine flourish in Crushed Curry. Leaves are a mix of Old Olive edged in Artichoke. Razzleberry polka dot ribbon (reversed) with Basic Gray cardstock that was edged with the new scallop border punch.
