CSS Color Challenge Hop

Hi there and thanks for stopping by for the Gina K. Designs Center Stage Spotlight Color Challenge

Kay chose the following GKD colors for us to choose from:  Dark Chocolate, Tomato Soup, Honey Mustard, In The Navy and Ivory as a neutral.

You should have arrived at my blog from Kay's amazing blog, but if you didn't you can go back to Stamp TV and start at the beginning.

I chose Ivory and In The Navy as my jumping off point.


I have had these print papers in my stash for some time and thought they would work perfectly for this challenge.  I see the Navy, Tomato Soup and Honey Mustard colors popping out everywhere!
I stamped this beautiful stem of leaves from the beautiful GKD Elegant Florals set that was illustrated by Theresa Momber with In The Navy, Tomato Soup and Honey Mustard inks.  I overlapped the branches ever so slightly to add some fullness to the sprays.  I stamped the sentiment from the same set in Navy as well.  For a finishing touch I added some Diamond Stickles to the Navy leaves only and added some ribbon, buttons and twine.

I think this will make a great masculine birthday card (even if there is a little glitter) :)

Be sure to head on over to Miesje's awesome blog and see what she has created using this awesome fall color palette.
