Color Inspiration

Wow three post in one day, I must have missed my blogging while on vacation!
I've been wanting to try one of Kristina's Color Inspiration challenges for a while now and tonight I thought I would. I used one of my favorite stamp sets from the current SU catty, Wonderful You and made a longer card. As much as I like the color combo, looking at my card I think that it looks a little Halloweenish (is that a word?) with the Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun and Basic Black, but it did break me out of using my SU color wheel! It was fun and I'd like to try it again!

Supplies: Wonderful You, All Holidays, Nestabilities, Brads, Piercer w/mat. Colors: Basic Black, Rose Red, Pumpkin Pie, Summer Sun.
