Inspired by a Plate
When I saw Kristina’s latest color inspiration challenge (#24), I immediately had an idea for a card. I definitely wanted to emboss the big Baroque background on Pumpkin Pie card stock and cut it out with the largest Coluzzle circle. I also knew I wanted to use the Kiwi Kiss/Very Vanilla satin ribbon. The other elements just fell into place on this 5-1/4″ square card.

I punched out the little Kiwi Kiss circles in the top left corner with my 1/4″ and 1/8″ circle punches and glued them to the card. Tweezers come in really handy when you have to handle such tiny pieces of paper.

Thanks for stopping by!
