Papertrey Ink October 2014 Blog Hop - #2

Too many beautiful non-traditional color combos not to play again!  This time I chose to work with the Pure Poppy, Raspberry Fizz, Hawaiian Shores, & New Leaf color combo and the "Painted Poinsettias" stamp set.  I am still in love with the Basic Bookmark 3 die and plan on giving out some bookmarks as simple gifts this year, so this challenge worked out perfectly to get a little ahead. 



 
I used "Background Basics: Super Chevron" to create a bit of background using the 4 colors and I really like the bold against the pretty flower!  I couldn't capture it in my photos, but I used Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist on the flowers so they really sparkle IRL! :0)  The sentiment is from "Season's Greetings" (ALL stamps PTI).  A few gold sequins, some gold embossed curly cues, red dyed seam binding ribbon, and bakers twine finished up these bright and kind of funky bookmarks! :0)
