My Color Inspiration #1 Card

After posting the first My Color Inspiration yesterday, I promised to show you what I came up with! This is the first time I tried this and it was so much fun. :)
The Stampin' Up! colors to be used were:
Rose Red
Elegant Eggplant
Sky Blue (In Color)
Whisper White

I used solid color cardstock, except I decided to use the Rose Red Designer Paper. As many of you know, I am a DP hoarder, and it just about kills me to cut it up! However I thought that the Rose Red DP was perfect for this project, so I took the plunge.

I also cut the paper in the opposite direction that I usually do. The sentiment just seemed to fit better that way. Overall, I'm pretty happy with the way this turned out. I was bummed that when I looked at my ribbon stash, I had nothing to match! I think I'm needing some ribbon on my next order. :)

In addition to the cardstock above, I also used Stampin' Up!'s square Ice Brads and non-SU punches. The stamp set is Time Well Spent. I wanted to use this set because I have a dear friend who's going through a rough time right now and I'm going to give her this card.

Don't forget to send me your photos if you tried this My Color Inspiration and I'll post them here.
