October Papertrey Blog Hop - Holly and Mistletoe

This month's blog hop at Papertrey Ink offered up inspiration pictures with non traditional colour combinations.  I took the following as my jumping off point:
Couldn't quite incorporate the Sweet Blush into this card except for a pale pink envelope that I will use to mail this card ... :-)
 I used Kraft cardstock as my background and Tuscan Olive ink from Fresh! to stamp the holly images.  Some Merlot inked holly, Stickles and then the sentiment in Chocolate and Tuscan Olive (all Fresh! inks from Impress).
I am also entering this in the CAS-ual Fridays 'A touch of kraft' challenge:
You gotta love kraft - it always looks so good on cards, doesn't it?  Check out this hexagon card I made with kraft as well.

Supplies:
Paper: PTI Kraft
Stamps: PTI Holly and Mistletoe
Ink: Fresh! Chocolate, Tuscan Olive, Merlot

So pretty, Cara! Gotta love the flat cards - they make for easy mailing. The Fresh! pigment ink is always a good choice on Kraft cs.

LOL at how you plan in incorporate the blush -I like the color palette, but found the blush was tough to include too. Your card is lovely & I am another fan of a kraft base.
