Colour Combo Blog Hop

Welcome to this month's Colour Combo Blog Hop!  This is a monthly hop  of Stampin' Up! demonstrators from all over the world. Each month we are given the challenge of working with a specific color combination.  This month's combo is Pool Party, Blackberry Bliss, and Merry Merlot.  I have to admit that when I first saw the combo I wasn't sure how I was going to use.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

I used the Blended Seasons bundle for this month's card.  This bundle is only available during the month of August, so be sure to order it soon!  I started by using the leaf stamp to stamp a tone-on-tone background on the Pool Party layer.
I then stamped the Thank You sentiment on a piece of  Very Vanilla card stock and then die cut it with the largest shaped frame.  I love that the stitching on these dies are on both the inside and outside of the cutting line, making it more versatile!
After assembling the card I used die cut leaves in Pool Party, Blackberry Bliss and Merry Merlot to decorate the front.  I wanted to add a small amount of bling so I added a few metallic sequins.
