Winning Colours

I think The Paper Players have really outdone themselves with their latest colour challenge - the colours are gorgeous and the design team cards are stunning! As their blog said, the colours - Highland Heather, Lovely Lipstick and Granny Apple Green - particularly suited flowers, so of course I decided to try to use something else. Luckily, Freshly Made Sketches came through with a great sketch that made me think of Stampin' Up's Eastern Palace Suite - and so a card was born!

Stampin' Up Card (Whisper White, Highland Heather), ink (Lovely Lipstick, Granny Apple Green, Basic Black), Eastern Beauty Stamps (and Varied Vases stamp for the sentiment), Eastern Medallions Dies, Layering Circles Dies and Glitter Enamel Dots.
Other Products: Couture Creation Christmas Wrap embossing folder


  1. Yep the colors are gorgeous! Very pretty card! Glad you joined us at FMS!

  2. The embossing folder looks as though it was made to be part of the Eastern Palace suite - great choice. I like the way you've turned your back on floral and gone Eastern instead. Thank you for joining us at The Paper Players this week.

  3. Excellent card for the color challenge! You used the colors beautifully in such a fun layout and design! Glad you were able to play along with us over at The Paper Players this week!

  4. What a great alternative to florals - love the embossed background panel too! Thank you for joining my colour challenge over at The Paper Players this week!

  5. Those are lovely medallions. I love how you carried the shape throughout the card! Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
