Color Combo Blog Hop - October ...

Good morning and thank you for joining me in Norfolk in the UK.  Today I am joining the October Colour Combo Blog Hop and the colours we were tasked with this month are Real Red, Petal Pink and Blackberry Bliss.  Not necessarily colours I would put together on first glance but actually they really compliment each other.  I won't lie, I was crying out to use a little green when creating my project but I stuck with it and this is what I came up with.

I chose to highlight the beautiful First Frost Stamp Set, this is such a pretty set which creates beautiful results, very quickly.
I stamped the sprigs in the background in Blackberry Bliss, first and second generation stamping.  I then cut out some sprigs using Petal Pink cardstock and coloured the berries in Real Red.  I then stamped the flowers in Petal Pink and using a dauber, added some Real Red to the centres of the flowers.  I wanted to keep it quite simple and clean.  I then added the greeting and some mini gold sequins.  I added some Wink of Stella to the flowers but this doesn't really show in the photographs.

Thank you for joining me today, I hope you have enjoyed my project and I am now going to pass you on to Sandra who I am sure has a lovely project to share with you today.
Happy Stampin'
