FINALLY BREAKING IN MY NEW IN COLORS

Beate is back with her Be Inspired Challenge! This week's Be Inspired Challenge #19 used this awesome bedding from CB2 which prompted me to finally use two of the new Stampin' Up! In Colors from the new 2008 Fall Winter Catalog & Idea Book ... Kiwi Kiss and Tangerine Tango. (The other new In Colors are Pacific Point, Baja Breeze, Riding Hood Red, and Pink Pirouette.) Although I ventured out with my new In Colors, I'm still stuck in time with my old stamp sets ... I'll have some new SU Stamp sets coming soon!

As you can see, I took the pattern and the colors from the inspiration bedding quite literally with my design. I love the stripes on the pillow cases and mocked them on my card, and used the retired Level Two Hostess stamp set, Spring Solitude and retired Chocolate Chip Poly-Twill Ribbon. Along with the colors Kiwi Kiss and Tangerine Tango, I used Chocolate Chip and Basic Gray.
