Simply Stampin Challenge

I made this card for my friend's 50th Birthday! She has just arrived back from 5 weeks travelling in India - she must be frozen!  Anyway, I decided to enter it into this week's Simply Stampin Challenge for their colour challenge week - although I didn't have all the colours (no Island Indigo ink), so hope it's acceptable.  I used the SU French Foliage stamp set this time as I just love the splatt stamp in this set! I hope you guys (and Jill) like the card!!


  1. so great to see that you didn't let the fact that you didn't have all the exact colours stop you from entering, those leaves look fab in these colours! I love the block of text and the thread through the button!
    Thanks for joining us this week at Simply Stampin'
