Amuse Marigold Thanks

Happy Saturday!!! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I just got home from a wonderful class teaching by Julie Ebersole from Amuse. She is  SUPER talented and full of energy. This is my first time taking her class I LOVE it. I want to take this card to say thank you to Julie for a wonderful class.

There is a wonderful surprise for me. I met talented and sweet Ashely, Cherry Hill Design. She sits right across my table and we are working together. So exciting. This is the first I actually meet someone I know from the blog in person. (So sad, we don't have a camera with us to "keep" the moment.) I know I will take more Julie's class and I promise next time when I meet Ashley I will make sure we get the photo DONE.

Take home two beautiful stamps Marigold solid and Marigold. I am so inspired by Julie's card and made this one for PDCC44. I have this week's "colour horribilis challenge" stuck in my head for few days. I have no clue how to put these three color together and I think Amuse stamps are perfect for this challenge.
I stamp Marigold with watermark ink on Navy blue cardstock and use clear embossing powder.Trim a piece of mustard cardstcok and adhere on card base. Trim a white panel, ink up Marigold solid using two color, Mustard Seed distress ink (Ranger) and Pink A la mode(Hampton art). Stamp sentiment(So Artsy from Hero Arts) with Ocean Depth(Versa Magic). Adhere on card and add pearls.

Note:Really it's a bold bright pink (see the color Here) but after it mix up with the mustard seed it turned into kind of orange tune to me. It's a beautiful mistake and I hope this still qualify for the challenge.
