Colourful Vines

***This is my second post of the day.  Please click here for my Paper Smooches Sparks / Young Crafters Unite card.***

I sat and stared at this Just Add Ink inspiration photo for ages and actually nearly gave up on it.  I didn't want to go the purse route as I made a purse card just last week and I don't have much silver stuff kicking around at the moment.  That left me with the colour palette which I found a bit scary!  However, after going through just about every stamp set I own I settled on PTI's Background Basics: Vines set and the coordinating die. Despite my initial colour fear I ended up having fun with the card and with breaking in the stamps and die.  And speaking of dies, Young Crafter Unite, here I come with one more entry!  :)      
Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill, (Melon Mambo, Poppy Parade, Pool Party) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Vine border from Background Basics: Vines) PTI, (Sentiment) Hero Arts
Inks:  (Lucky Limeade) Stampin' Up

Dies:  (Leafy Vine Border) PTI
Punch:  (Corner Punch) Marvy Uchida

Awesome graphic design! I just love all those bright colours and that die is 'to die for'! (ps love the bits of vine around the sentiment)
