Primrose Autumn Leaves

Yesterday I said I would be coming back with a card but woops I didn't... sorry, but was making this card and had a real struggle with the colours... I hope you don't though as it's the theme for this week's challenge at Crafty Sentiments and would love to see you joining in. 

The theme this week is NEUTRAL COLOURS .... now I didn't say I didn't like the colours, just that I had a struggle, but I really loved this colour combo when I finally finished my card. .. I think it's really elegant.

For my card today I used one of the new rubber stamps being released this month at Crafty Sentiments, Primrose Autumn Leaves, and coloured her with my promarkers. 

There are six different stamps being released and a set of Autumn digi sentiments as well. Did I tell you that Crafty Sentiments will be stocking Martha Stewart punches by mid June? You can get them at a special pre-order offer price at the moment, so why don't you go and have a look here.

Back to my card, today I decided to add some forgotten peel-offs on my card... gave them a bronze coloured look with my promarkers... mmmm I think I should use them more often. The background paper is from DoCrafts, gorgeous flowers from Little Snippets, some faux stitching..  and... that's it!! Hope you like it :)

I am LOVING the peel offs and that you brozed them! And your are so unique in the different types that you use! Another cute image! Great coloring!

Mary J said...

Hi Dora! Lovin' the new look - so fresh! Lovin' the card too - the colouring is just beautiful!

I can't believe all of the work going on in Valetta - I hope it keeps some of traditional look though and not too cosmopolitan and modern! I visited Malta in my late teens - a very LONG time ago, lol!!!

What a super card Dora, I love all the pretty embelishments and like you I am always reluctant to use Geraldines lovely flowers and butterflies.

I too struggle with neutral colours, but I think you have done a great job here.

Thank you for joining in at Allsorts this week and good luck.
