Kwernerdesign.com - Colour Inspiration #49

Here is my entry for Kristina's Colour Inspiration challenge. As soon as I saw this fabric I knew I had to give it a go!
When the other entries started popping up around the place I was wishing I'd bought Petal Pizzazz (a set I didn't really look at twice but now have to have thanks to that damn internet!!!) but then I figured, how many times can Kristina look at the same set without going insane? So I decided to pull out a set that I thought still felt like the fabric and used "Enjoy Every Moment" I stamped the big flower in a rough pattern over the base cardstock and clear embossed it and built the card up from there.
I kept with a fabric-y kind of feel and used the eyelet border and gingham ribbon even though they didn't relate exactly to the material in the inspiration photo.
The finished product is something that is probably a bit 'busy' for my normal style but I'm happy with how it turned out.

Stamps: Enjoy Every Moment
Ink: Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss, Rose Red
Cardstock: Basic Black, Kiwi Kiss, Pacific Point, Raspberry Tart DSP
Accessories: Trio Flower, Designer Label, Large Oval, 1" Circle & Eyelet Border Punches, Build a Brad, Black Gingham ribbon, Rich Regals Brads, Clear EDP
