Beautiful Color Combinations

How wonderful are all the beautiful colors God has given us.  I just love to see  inspiration challenges that combine beautiful colors together.  Of course, it always helps when the Design Teams take those lovely colors and inspires you so wonderfully.  Such is the case in the current challenge at The Shabby Team Room where they have inspired you to use beautiful shades of cream/white along with blue, pink and also bring in flowers and fabric.  What a lovely combination, and DO stop by to check out the DT inspiration.  It will surely make you want to play along.  And, to make it even more wonderful (if that's possible), just wait until you see their generous prize this week from the wonderful sponsor, Just Rite Stamps.

Here is the color inspiration photo:
I decided to use some new Crate Paper Pretty Party collection patterned papers, chipboard embellishments and goodies I just got in the mail from an order I placed at Emma's Paperie.  I also used some vintage trims, PTI jute, The Twinery's Bakers Twine, a Kaiser Crafts wooden dress form, a couple of October Afternoon stickers, some machine stitching, and a vintage dress pattern on the base.  This is my card.
And here is the link to the challenge at The Shabby Tea Room.  They would love to have you play along.
