Creative Colour Challenges 54 with Sending Smiles bundle

Hello, I hope you are well.

These are the colours for the latest challenge over at

Please CLICK HERE to see Victoria’s gorgeous card with these colours and you can join in the fun here too!

Gray Granite made me think of the stunning Sun Prints designer series paper so that was the natural choice for my background. I’ve teamed it with the Sending Smiles stamp and Sending dies to create this card…

I made my l card base with Gray Granit card measuring 29 x 10.5 cm, scored & folded at 14.5 cm. I cut some Sun Prints DSP to measure 10 x 14 cm to layer onto my card base; I added some Gray Granite Shimmer ribbon to it before I attached the DSP to the card. I then added a bow made with the ribbon, using glue dots.

I stamped my sentiment with Gray Granite ink onto Basic White card and cut it with the Sending die. I stamped the flower with Mango Melody and the stem with Soft Succulent and cut them with their matching dies too.

My sentiment was stamped with Soft Succulent ink and again I used another Sending die to cut it out.

I raised the Sending die cut with mini dimensionals and added some Brushed Brass Butterflies as a finishing touch…

I love the subtle shimmer of that ribbon!!

    Such a beautiful card Heather. I love how it’s pretty much all Gray Granite, then that Pop of colour really stands out. Thanks for joining in with Creative colour Challenges xx
