Color Inspiration #31

Hello! Happy Tuesday! So I decided to try another challenge and stumbled onto http://www.kwernerdesign.com/blog, where you can find really awesome color inspiration challenges. I really liked the colors this week and decided to try my hand at it. Check out the inspiration: And here's my interpretation:

I started with a dark chocolate mulberry paper as my background. Then I decided that the brown was just a little too dark and accented it with a creamy offwhite waffle weave cardstock and a light tan velour ribbon. Since next week is Thanksgiving I decided to go with a thankful theme.
I chose a pumpkin colored cardstock and stamped many tanks in white, but it needed something so I found that cool orangey patterned paper with some scraps and backed the tag in it and them I outlined the lettering in the stamp with a dark pumpkin marker. I added the orange and white polka dotted ribbon and a creamy iridescent edged ribbon.
I then grabbed a purpley cardstock and some white mulberry white and I used my thank you background stamp and some lavender ink, and I even inked the edges for effect. I offset the papers and added some bronze brads.

And last but never least, I added some fun Prima Flowers to accent the rich colors and of course, to add some glitz. I am totally hooked on glitter lately! I love it!!!
