Welcome back to another Colour Combo Hop.  Aren't these colours just gorgeous ?  You join us today for a another hop around the globe with fellow Demonstrators, joining me Sandra here in Norfolk, UK.

I was soooooooo pleased to see my favourite Blackberry Bliss as a 'returning' colour this year,  plus having still kept a small stash when it retired a few years ago, was able to start using straight away !
Having seen one of our new Designer Series Papers in use on a project, it reminded me of the Playful Backgrounds stamp set #141920.  This set has been in previous catalogues a while but has sadly been a bit neglected lately.  Thinking outside the box, I thought it might work well with this colour combination.
All of my cards today were super quick to create and feature all three colours in the colour combo above, just in a different order!  I started cutting and scoring base card in each of the colour card, Petal Pink #147009, Crumb Cake #121685 and Blackberry Bliss #133682.  The mat layers in each colour of card were cut at 12.8cm x 8.5cm.

The white layers were cut to 12.3 x 8cm and stamped randomly with Petal Pink #147108, Crumb Cake #147116 and Blackberry Bliss #147092 ink pads. and stuck to the middle mat layers.  This double layer was attached to the centre of each base card.
Lastly, I cut TWO of each colour card using the Happy Birthday Thinlits Dies #143700.  Two different colours were placed on each blank card, making sure the top layer was the 3rd colour in the combo.  Two layers of thinlits were attached together using the Fine-Tip Glue Pen #138309 and then onto centre of card.
Small circles were punched from Silver Glimmer Paper #146960.  These were attached to the dot on the 'i' in Birthday and a stack of 3 in the corner.  This is a great tip for using up some of those offcuts of Silver Glimmer we hang on to and a great substitute for Rhinestone Gems when you run out !
