Colour Inspired Pocket Silhouettes

As soon as I saw Kristina's colour inspiration I thought of my Pocket Silhouettes stamp set from SU. Aren't the colours this week so warm and cozy - Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Bordering Blue, Sage Shadow, Certainly Celery. I went more with the plums than the greens, so I didn't end up using any Sage Shadow...I hope that's ok.  

I wanted to do a simple card for a change. 
I started by stamping the flower image first with Perfect Plum, then with Pale Plum, then with white ink. I rounded the corners and layered it onto some Perfect Plum CS, then I tied the Celery ribbon. 

For the rest of the card, the base is Perfect Plum and I rounded the top corners. The white layer is sponged with Perfect Plum ink. The strip at the bottom is Bordering Blue, which I ran through the Floral Screen Cuttlebug folder. Then I sponged it with Perfect plum ink. 

There's a lot less to this design than I usually do, but I like the simplicity of it. And I really like that it came together quickly.  :)

Thanks for stopping by!
