CR84FN Colour Challenge #30

Love this inspirational photo with it's beautiful colour challenge:
Play along if you can, these colours are so soothing and calming, you can find the challenge here.  And this is what I made:

Paper: PTI
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa; Versamark; Antique Linen Distress Ink
Stamps: Hero Arts (CG102; CL404)
Other: Pearls (stash); MFT Rolled Flower Die; Clear embossing powder; PTI Edgers Die #1; Paper Piercer

I did a little bit of paper piercing around the yellow mat and then stamped it with the Antique Brocade stamp from Hero Arts using versamark and heat embossing it with clear embossing powder.

Love those little flowers made the My Favourite Things "Rolled Flower Die"!  Another really simple and plain card, I was just loving those colours!  Thanks for the inspiration Mona! (Oh, and Martha Stewart, which is where the graphic comes from!).

Wishing you a fabulous day!
