Cake Soiree in Coral and Razzleberry

Hello! there,
I have a Cake Soiree card fo you today :-) We made this card at a blends class recently and used the Coral, Olive and Razzleberry markers (back soon.) I actually really like the colour combo and it was great fun to use some colours that I wouldn't necessarily choose first.
I don't know about you but personally I do find myself using the same colours a lot of the time - which is also why the upcoming colour refresh will be so much fun!
Anyway, let's get back to today's card. This bundle is only available with the 10% discount for another week then the stamps and dies will be in the new catalogue but only separately but that gorgeous paper is leaving us forever on the 31st May..
So, this card is not the exact same as the card my ladies made as I managed to loose the little cake stand die on the morning (or ate the night before) the class!
Luckily I found it the afternoon after class.I had exhausted all possibilities before I finally emptied my craft room bin, piece by piece, and it was sat at the bottom! Also luckily it is a paper and card waste only bin so it wasn't too yucky *phew*
  Another thing I like about the blends is when you add Wink of Stella over the top the colour stays in the same place, unlike watercolours. Great when you forget to add WoS and have to go back in. I try to plan WoS earlier in the colouring when I watercolour ;-)
 I like the addition of sequins and a little (retired) hessian trim behind, I think it makes it perfect for a country style wedding card although you could also easily add a birthday sentiment to suit...
TIP: I uses a mini stapler to add sequin trim to the card securely. I find this to be much more secure than tape and a whole lot tidier than I can do using glue ;-)
 So, what do you think of these colours? Do you enjoy making something a bit different sometimes? Then why not come to a class? I hold monthly classes here in the South of the UK and if you are a long way away then head over to Stampin' Up's main webpage and search for a demo where you are and join in the fun! I' love to hear from you and see what you've been making :-)
Right, that's me for today, I'm off into my craft room to finish about four cards I have on the go at the moment! Have a lovely Friday!
