In Good Taste for AYSI 238

Welcome to a new challenge at As You See It. This week, it's Week 2 of the roster so that makes it a Colour Challenge. This colour challenge was my pick and I chose it so long ago that the wonderful Mountain Air bundle wasn't even around - or if it was, it wasn't on my radar. 

Although I think that would be a great set to pick, and was the one I intended to use when I sat down at my desk, things turned out rather differently!

I've used an eclectic mix of sets for this one but still like how it turned out. The Petal Pink feathers, sponged at the tips with Flirty Flamingo, are dies from Nature's Thoughts. The tattered lace and foliage stamped behind are from Tasteful Touches.

I used the Tasteful Textile embossing folder and cut the Basic Gray frame using the Stitched Rectangles dies. The mat is Flirty Flamingo and the card base Basic Black.

The sentiment is from Itty Bitty Greetings and the die is from Tasteful Labels dies.
Finally, I added in three (retired) black rhinestones.

Product List 
Note: Black Rhinestones are a retired item.


  1. The pink ;eaf die-cuts look great over the delicate greenery on the Tasteful Textile white thick paper.

  2. Love your card Jan - so much texture and dimension from those feathers and a stunning background too! This colour palette was a great choice - I really enjoyed working with it :-)
