Beautiful Bling

Another Good Morning to you!  Some weeks I even amaze myself by the amount I can create when I'm inspired.  How many posts this week?  5?  God has graciously blessed me with time this week. This card was inspired by two things:  the Crazy 4 Challenges Sketch and the colours from the sweater of a little girl I saw walking to school.  Now I see how artists tend to observe their surroundings to find a muse. I don't think I've ever used Garden Green before and I use Certainly Celery very infrequently but I LOVE Rich Razzleberry. I tend to stick with colours from the Rich Regals or Earth Elements.    What about you?  Do you like soft pastels, earth tones,  bright or rich?  What's your favourite colour?  (It doesn't have to be SU!, in fact I would love to be introduced to other brilliant colours.)

Paper: Garden Green, Rich Razzleberry, Certainly Celery and Very Vanilla CS
Ink:  Rich Razzleberry
Accessories:  Non SU! Buttons and Bling, SU! 5 Petal punch, small corner punch, embossing folder, dimensionals.
Stamps:  A Beautiful Thing


  1. This card is gorgeous! Not colors I would be inclined to whip out (I don't think I've EVER used Garden Green), but they all combine beautifully. The bling is such a great idea for the circle, Laural...I just love it!

    I'm totally with you (again!). The first ink colors I bought were Rich Regals and the second....Earth Elements. I still have yet to get the others. I do find myself reaching for soft subtles, but it's rare that I find much use for the Bold Brights (aside from Real Red lately). You've inspired me, though...

  2. pretty card, love all that bling

  3. love the colours together...never use garden green...but celery and razzleberry, yum! I love teal, pumpkin pie, mustard, kraft and raspberry fizz, berry sorbet, and many of the PTI colours. I hope to have stamping time this weekend :) Enjoy your trip :)

  4. What a super take on that sketch! And those colors are so original...great job!
