A criss cross thank you card for the SWU colour challenge


What a marvellous set of entries we had for the last Stamp With Us challenge. So many of you created fantastic christmas themed projects and I had a wonderful time browsing them all.

It's time now for another SWU colour challenge and our inspiration this time is this bag:
I'm still busy with "thank you's" and so I've used the colours to create this criss cross thank you card:


Recipe
Stamp sets: Sincere Salutations, One of a Kind
Cardstock: Sahara Sand, Summer Sun (textured), Bravo Burgundy, Whisper White
Ink: Bravo Burgundy, Summer Sun
DSP: To the Nines Speciality, Pink Flamingo
Punches: Corner Rounder, Boho Blossoms, Round Tab, Scallop Circle, 1/2" Circle
Other: Gold Brads

The To the Nines Speciality paper shouldn't really be described as a paper at all. All the SU papers are a substantial weight but this one is even thicker and slightly textured too. I love how the Summer Sun card and paper lifts the colour scheme from being too dismal for this time of year.

The insert pulls out to write a more personal message on:


Looking forward to seeing your versions of the colour challenge. Please do go take a look at the rest of the Design Team creations, they're such an inspiration.
