JustRite Challenge #097, Color Inspiration

Happy Sunday!

I would like to share a card I made for the JustRite Color Inspiration Challenge.  The challenge was to use JustRite product on a card or project and use orange, beige and blue. 

The background was stamped with JR Floral Flourishes in Martha Stewart's teal blue ink and then heat embossed.  Tim Holt's Distress Stain Spiced Marmalade was then applied. 

The funny thing about this card:  My "Spellbinders used" list could be very long, as could paper used.  There were 12 Spellbinder die sets that I tried out for this card that I just did not like.  Because of the tries and misses, many papers were cut and eventually set aside.  You should have seen my craft desk!  Orange, beige and blue papers were strewn everywhere!  I won't even begin to tell you about the ribbon and embellishments.  LOL.  That is what I get for trying to make a card without a sketch.  Lesson learned.  :)

My Spellbinders used list ended up as: Labels Twenty, Floral Flourishes, Twisted Metal Tags and Accents, and Timeless Rectangle.  The JR stamp set Special Gifts Labels Twenty Nine provided the sweet sentiment. 

As a heads up, Joann Fabrics is having an online sale on JR stamps!  I believe it ends today or tomorrow.  Very good prices!  And there is a shipping code SHFP146 for $2.95 shipping!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  To my peeps down in the States, have a great Memorial Day. 

This card is entered into the following challenges:
