Another Colour Combo Card

This is the 3rd card I made with this week's Simply Stampin' combo challenge colours of Regal Rose, Real Red, Island Indigo and Whisper White. When I sat down to make my first card for the challenge I couldn't decide whether to use the Triple Treat Flower stamp or the Posy Punch set so I stamped with both.  On that day the Posy Punch set won but I set this flower panel aside to make into a card later.  I used a layout from last week's 52 {Christmas}Card Throwdown sketch challenge and that combined with the prepared panel meant this card came together in a jiffy!  The Indigo flower layer and the main image panel are popped up.


Here's the inside and the envelope - I just love that birdie from the Sweetheart set!  So 3 cards made with this colour combo - not bad considering I didn't like the sound of this colour combo at all when I first saw it!  Just goes to show, don't knock it 'til you try it, you might be pleasantly surprised!
