Verve CAS and Colour Challenge

To help me combine both  March Verve Release challenges, I got the chance to use Fall to Layout #81.  What better place to find a CAS sketch than at Clean and Simple Stamping?  And I loved this sketch!!!  In order to meet the flower requirement of the Verve CAS challenge I used die cuts (I didn't have very many flower stamps that would work well).  And to make the sketch more my own I added some faux stitching around the edges. (That part made me a little nervous as I didn't want to have to scrap it and start again).  I didn't have a verve stamp that fit nicely in the sentiment area so I found an alternative. 

I have to admit that the colour combo scared me a little.  A little too retro, but I think once I got the hang of it, the colours made a really striking combination! I'm going to have to try these colours again!  Meanwhile, I've got to get a move on dinner and laundry!  Have a fantastic evening.

Paper:  White (PTI), Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, So Saffron (from the SU! Princess Party Kit)
