STAMPTACULAR # 114 "Colour Challenge" with Crafty Emma

Happy Sunday!  It's time for another fun challenge at the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge blog where we have a colour challenge of Black, Bright Pink, Tan, and White.
We have two fantastic sponsors this week:   Simon Says Stamp are offering one lucky winner a $20 gift certificate and Elisabeth Bell are giving away the winner's choice of two lovely digis.
I opted for something completely different for me, following this week's "CAS" theme at Crafty Emma's and using a recently purchased Stampin Up set.  My card was entirely inspired by Alex (who in turn I believe had been inspired by Joanne) two fabulously talented crafters!
I stamped a second set of blossoms for the image, cut them out and decoupaged them on top.  It just gives a little added dimension.  The DP is also SU and I used Kraft for "tan", punched with an SU punch!
I have made this card for my sister-in-law to whom I am also giving some theatre tickets as a birthday present.
I decorated the envelope in which the tickets are held in a similar manner to the card and I even stamped and coloured the card envelope too. You can just see it underneath.  All colouring is with Copics.  The sentiment on the envelope containing the theatre tickets is SU and the sentiment on the card is Paper Tray Ink.
Why not join in with us at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge this week and (remember to STAMP!) - and do come by the challenge blog to see how my talented teamies have interpreted the challenge this week!  There's tons of fabulous inspiration!
