Timeless Tuesday: Poppy, Emerald Coast & Rich Browns

Happy Tuesday everyone!  We are well into 2013 and I've had my stampin' groove on for a few weeks so I've been stamping up a storm of cool cards using our newest release stamps; Just My Type, Roses Are Red and Inside & Out; Happy. Our New Release Bundle gives you 10% off the total price if you purchase all of the stamp sets in our newest release.  And have you seen our AMAZING 123 Create Kit, "Love Story" yet!?!  It's divine!!!

This week's Timeless Tuesday Challenge comes to us from the lovely, Broni Holcombe!  And Broni's challenge this week, FTTC203, is for us to use any combination of colors from the Poppy, Emerald Coast and Rich Browns paper collections (seen below).  What a great colour combination to inspire us this week.

So here is my card inspired by Broni's colour combination...

Life is a Journey

I first began with a kraft cardstock base, approximately 5 x 5.5.  Then I took some super cute patterned papers from Bo Bunny that worked perfectly with the Poppy & Emerald Coast colour scheme and matted them using the darkest richest brown from the Color Made Easy "Rich Brown" cardstock collection. I did them same thing with my banner piece of patterned paper.

Then I cut out a brown cardstock "Marvelous Squares" from Spellbinders and used it to create a frame for my sentiment form the new "Just My Type" stamp set, stamped in Memento's "Love Letter" ink on Flourishes Classic Ivory Cardstock.

I added some finishing touches with some Basque Red seam binding from the Color Made Easy "Poppy" ribbon collection and fun brad.  I also added a few pearls to the corners of the frame.

Take a peek at what my fellow Timeless Tuesday designers have created for today's challenge…
