Kristina Werner Colour Inspiration #31

It's that time of the week again for another Kristina Werner Colour Inspiration and I think I should be just in time to get my card linked onto her blog with the other ones, although much later than many of them! I decided not to look at the other entries until I had created mine as I did not want to be influenced by their designs and wanted to see what the colours and image inspired from me and here it is:

Stamps: Infinite Goodness (Level 2 Hostess gift), Seasons of Joy (for the words)
Cardstock: So Saffron, Close to Cocoa, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White
Inks: Close to Cocoa (to stamp the image several times to create the wreath), Elegant Eggplant (words)
Accessories: Stampin' Write Markers (So Saffron, Elegant Eggplant, Pumpkin Pie), gold thread, paper piercer, Crystal Effects, Grosgrain Ribbon (Elegant Eggplant), snail adhesive and mini glue dots for the bow

If you look closely you will notice that I weaved some gold thread through the wreath. By clicking on the card image above it will enlarge it so you can see more of the detail including the gold thread weaved through and some of the berries have been covered with crystal effects to shine more - I need to practice with my photoshop program to highlight parts of my image to show the detail in close-up!

These were the colours Kristina gave us and as you can see I was also inspired by her image.

I hope you enjoyed looking at my design and I will now go and check out the others to see how they were inspired. Thanks again to Kristina for the challenge!

Happy stamping!
