Inspiring Inkin' Challenge

A bit of a challenge for me - making a card without a stamped image from Magnolia, WOJ or Sugar Nellies!!!
A few weeks ago I had a Stampin Up workshop at home and met a lovely Stampin Up! consultant - Amanda. I have a selection of SU! stamps but it was really lovely to see Amanda's work and get lots of ideas! I was pointed in the direction of her challenge blog - here.
This sketch is challenge number 9 - and you had to use colours from the same colour family and one neutral.
The Sketch
My card

I have had to cheat a bit as I had no Stampin Up cardstock - but I do have a colour swatch of the colour families - so I matched them as best I could!

My card is using the Earth Elements Family - Chocolate Chip and Old Olive cardstock and Very Vanilla as my neutral.
I have used the Forever Flowers wheel with Choc Chip ink, Sincere Salutations and Pocket Silhouettes Stamp Sets using Close to Cocoa ink pad. I have also used SU punches - circle, large oval and scallop oval.

I hope you like it - and as always thanks for looking
Love Sarah xx
