Colour INKspiration Challenge #14 Blog Hop

I'm sure I say this each time but..... gee each fortnight rolls around quickly! Time for another Colour INKspiration blog hop. Whether you have hopped over from visiting Jackie or are starting with me, we have lots of INKspiration for you. Check out the colours for our challenge.

Such rich, cozy colours to suit the chilly weather we have been having in Australia lately. I have added Whisper White for my card.

I usually have a million ideas running around in my head but sometimes I like to build on ideas from previous cards and just change it up a touch. CASE myself I guess. Earlier this week I was playing with the scallop thinlit from the Seasonal Layers thinlits for these cards and thought it would work perfectly with some of the thinlits in the Celebration Time bundle. (Do you have that yet? I love it but think it might be getting over looked!)

The Celebration Time bundle has these great images to stamp with coordinating thinlits. They are a great size and I thought they would work as a different take for this colour combination. And a bow and some mini sequin trim always adds a nice touch! You can see some other things I have made with this bundle here.

I always like to try and use all the thinlits in a set at some stage. Sometimes I cannot for the life of me work out what some of them are for. Have a look at the Smoky Slate pieces I have die cut out of one of those mysterious thinlits. They fitted in perfectly to dress up my scallop edges but I am not sure what they are actually for. Maybe to drape across the cake? Any ideas? I would love to hear your thoughts.

This week I am also obsessed with my Decorative Ribbon Border punch. I have used it under my front mat with just the scallop edge peeping out. Some Metallic Enamel Shapes added an extra sparkle to my card. Job done!
