Thank You

Hi and Happy Wednesday!


I pulled out an old favorite, Damask Designs, to create a background for this card. The focal image, from Mat Stack 4 Collection, was stamped in Hawaiian Shores ink, with the center damask image stamped in Aqua Mist.

I LOVE these two colors together! I just need to buy an ink to match Royal Velvet.

Have a great day!

I agree, those colors are wonderful together! Beautiful card!

Lindsay said...

I'm with Lee Anne, that's a great card. Is it rude for me to suggest a lime green with the aqua? I love that combo too.

Amy Beth said...

Beautiful! I love the color combo!

Beautiful, Melissa! I love how you used the same image as a background AND the focal. I'm not sure I could pull that off! Great card!

Omg!! These colours together are scrumptious !!
Lov how you put a damask element in the middle if the mat stack-perfect!!

Belinda said...

Stunning colors! So elegant and lovely!

Susan said...

Oooh! I would never think to mix those colors together. They look fantastic, so rich and colorful. And you are making me regret selling my Damask set and yearn even more for the Mat Stack set. It's a good pain though. ;) lol!

Oh MAN Melissa...this made my jaw drop! What a perfectly STUNNING color combo! I'll bet IRL the shine from the embossed damask is pretty.
