Magnolia vs Stampavie Colour Challenge and a little toot

Donna has set a Colour challenge this week, the colours that have to be used are Brown, Sage, Pink and White (Stampin Up colours Close to Cocoa, Pretty in Pink, Sage Shadow and Whisper White).
Challenge_12


Before I go on to the card details I have to have my little toot - I woke up this morning to a whole load of messages on the SCS forum - guess what!! I'm this weeks Featured Stamper, somebody pinch me - I'm dreaming for sure!! So much has happened since I started blogging in April - I am so in shock lol.

Now I struggled with this - I could not find any papers in my huge stash that had this combination of colours so I didn't use any SU cardstock. I ended up going with dark brown, sage, pink and white - all non-SU. Thank goodness for that old HOTP pad that I got from QVC yonks ago - it's helped me out once again - phew!!
sarah-kay-1st-colour-combo The sentiment on the inside looks totally skew whiff here but it's not, honest. I've kept the inside pretty plain and simple again, the floral stamp and scoll is from that free set that I bought the Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine for. Now that was a bargain, it's a fab collection of useful stamps.

Recipe
The Sarah Kay image has been coloured with the usual distress inks and H2O's. The sentiment on the front is from the freebie stamp set as is the flowers and scroll on the inside. The sentiment on the inside is from Elzybells
Papers are all from the HOTP QVT TSV kit from a couple of years ago
Scallop punch is from Stampin Up, as is the label punch
Corners on the front of the card are cut from a Quickutz die as is the scrolls.
Rest of stuff from stash
I’ve also received not one, but two awards from Nicola! Thanks so much sweetie xx I was also photo tagged by Suze and Natalie (NGCards). Thanks girlies, I’ve already done this one xxx
