Elegant vases

I was so happy when my Stampin' Up Varied Vases arrived - I'd been looking forward to playing with it. The combination of a great sketch from Just Add Ink and colours from Color Throwdown gave me the chance. (I always feel odd about writing 'colour' - spelling it the English way - when the blog is spelt the American way, but I feel even odder spelling it without the 'u'! So I've resigned myself to two spellings in the same sentence!)
Here's the card. I tried to get three different intensities of navy on the vases, but not sure how successful I was!

Card ingredients:
Stampin' Up ink (Night of Navy, Blushing Bride, Basic Black), card (Blushing Bride, Night of Navy, Whisper White), stampset (Varied Vases) 
Other: francheville gold diamantes and some gold washi tape (sorry, no idea where I got it!)


  1. I knew this set was for you! Love the colour combination... and smiled at you having your colour cake and eating it too! I quite agree that when it's a title, you have to leave the spelling alone though.

  2. I can definitely see the colour variation in your vases Jo! I love the spray of pink flowers and how it pulls you over to the sentiment. Thanks for joining us at Just Add Ink this week.

  3. Such an elegant colour combo Jo and love the touch of gold washi bringing it all together. Your vases are beautifully done and the perfect fit for the sketch! Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink this week.
