Treat Me Like a Queen!


My first submission to Color Combos Galore!

Everything comes from Stampin' Up.
I love those rosettes (5/8" Flower Trim #126869).
They come in "Victoria" (off-white), but it's easy enough to add
color by pressing them into a stamp pad.

At the Dallas Regional, it was suggested to simply put
a rosette on an ink pad and it will slowly draw color up
but I really didn't want to wait!
Nor did I want to run the risk of my ink pad drying out.

This is the color combo challenge:
 and the inspirations to use were:

CABOCHONS

ABOUT OR FOR A FEMALE

PASTE OR PAINT

JOURNAL/SENTIMENT ON TAG

I think I covered all 4!

This was super fun and I love to get inspiration to try 
somethings outside of my creative box and comfort zone.

I love coral. I especially love SU's Calypso Coral
and I am going to sorely miss it when it retires May 31, 2013.
I'm looking forward to a new set of "In-Colors"
but I wish we could keep this one. And Pool Party. And Lucky Limeade.

The sentiment comes from Favorite Thoughts which is retired.
The stamped flowers are from Language of Friendship (#122752)
