More Exciting News!!!

Oh boy!!  What a great week!  I have some more exciting news to share! I was chosen to be on the Picture Perfect Creations Design Team!! I am looking forward to the weekly challenges because they will encourage me to get out of my comfort zone!  The colours this week are fun: So Saffron, Not Quite Navy and Riding Hood Red.

This week is my first challenge with these wonderful ladies and I have to admit, I did not know where to start with these colours!  I decided to ink up my Friendly Words Wheel in Riding Hood Red ink and inked the Riding Hood Red paper.  I love the tone on tone look and it creates a nice background.

Then I got out Mr. Big and using my Floral Fusion Die, I made some Saffron flowers for the side of the card.  I used three flowers. I also got to use some Riding Hood Red striped grosgrain ribbon that I had bought from the Stampin' Up Clearance Rack. 

The sentiment is from the stamp set is called "Word Play" and I love the many sentiments that come with it!  Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you get the chance to visit the Picture Perfect Creations Challenge Blog and play along with us this week!!

Paper: Not Quite Navy, Riding Hood Red, So Saffron, Naturals Ivory and Whisper White
