Colour Inspiration #37

It's been a long while since I've been able to participate in Kristina's Colour Inspiration, so I just had to take a few minutes after supper tonight to 'play' along:) I was also feeling particularly inspired today by this card on the Stamping Cafe blog - so I took inspiration from Kristina's colours and Kiara's design and this is what I came up with...

Once again I took the pictures by artificial light because it was after-dark here, but this time I used some of Kristina's tips from her Q&A, so you'll have to let me know if you think it improved the quality. I'm still not as happy as when I take pictures in daylight, but I do think the colours are truer than the last time I tried with artificial light, so THANKS for the tips Kristina!!

Recipe:
Old Olive Cardstock SU
Baha Breeze DSP SU
Twill Background Stamp SU
Felt ribbon & Linen thread SU
Prima flowers
Big shot top note SU
Cute & Curly stamp set and label punch SU
Miscellaneous brads

This is beautiful! Nice work with the pictures too, I know how hard it is to get a decent pic at night so I think you did great! I really really want that top note and the curly label punch now, SU haven't given them to us in NZ yet (sob!). Thanks for visiting my blog too!

Thanks for stopping by my blog to look at this challenge. I like the way you've shadowed the label, I'll have to try that. The flowers are gorgeous. Sara
