Stamp with Us Colour Challenge

Hi there!
The stamp with us colour challenge this week is based on this picture below:

Looking at it again, I would now choose SU! pink passion & real red BUT when I made my card yesterday I was inspired to use regal rose, rose red & sage shadow. If I get time (unlikely!) I will try & make another using the brighter pink & red.....meanwhile, here's what I came up with:

Stamps: embrace life, polka dot background Card & Ink: regal rose, rose red, sage shadow, black stazon Other: regal rose grosgrain, silver hodgepodge hardware, scallop punch, rose red dsp, nestabilities dies (non SU!)

Here's a close up of the layering on the flower (or rather, an excuse to try out the macro function on my new camera!!)

Why not pop over to Stamp with Us & join in?

Bye for now from a cold, blustery Perth!
