Crazy Crafters Colour Combo

We hope you enjoy our virtual hop where you will either learn great techniques for your paper crafting projects or just enjoy each of the ladies lovely creations!
Our host this month is Crafty Crafters Team Leader Kylie Bertucci. You should have just left stop #3 Nicole Spicer,  If so you are in the right place. If you lose your way, dont worry, a full line up of the hop is listed below.

The challenge was set to us this month to pick a colour combination from the Stampin Up Colour Board and set about creating using that colour combo! What a challenge it was. How on earth do you chose!! I love all the colours but there are certain combinations that visually excite me.

So this is the colour combo I settled on:

Im a HUGE fan of all these colours seperately but never thought of putting them together. In my project that was inspired by this combo, I have left out Pink Pirouette as I felt it just wasnt needed.

I have used a few different of my favourite items at the moment in this project. Doilies, Washi Tape and the Tag Topper punch. I embossed the Calypso Coral base piece with a striped embossing folder just to give it a bit of dimension.
I love how the Banner Framelits dies coordinated with the Perfect Pennants stamp set. It made it very easy to construct the card.
Of course I LOVE bling and put it on everything, so a few small touches of Rhinestones and it finished it off nicely without over doing it.
I also think that this card wouldnt look quite right or be complete without the Doilie! So versatile and can be used in so many ways.

Such an easy card to put together and again, another one that can be used for many occasions.
I hope you enjoyed my project as much as I enjoyed making it. I have missed the last few hops so it was a treat to be a part of this one. Here is the list of the line up, be sure to keep hopping and check out the rest of the creations.
Until next time
