Isn’t it wonderful??

Here is my card with the color combo.

SONY DSC 

All stamps are from Kitchen Sink Stamps.  I found the designer paper that matched with the color combo…I love this kind of things happen from time to time :):) After that, the card was quickly designed using the matching colored elements.

 

These are the steps I did for each image:
(roses) 1st – SU pink pirouette, 2nd – SU regal rose, 3rd – SU real red (1 x stamp off), 4th – SU real red

(leaves) 1st – SU certainly celery , 2nd – SU wild wasabi (1 x stamp off), 3rd – wild wasabi

 

Stamps: 3 Step Hearts & Roses - “Roses and the word ‘for you’, Whole Family - “Happy”, Word of Comfort & Joy - “So” (KSS) 
Paper:  classic white (Flourishes), baja breeze, real red, certainly celery (SU), designer paper (MME) 
Ink: Memento tuxedo black  (Tsukineko), pink pirouette, regal rose, real red, certainly celery, wild wasabi, baja breeze (SU)
Accessories: ribbon, pearls
