Colour Creations - Cajun Craze

Our feature colour this week is Cajun Craze, a rusty, autumnal shade. I'm sure there will be lots of inspiration shared on this blog hop, so make sure you spend the time checking them out.

It seemed a good time to make a Twist and Pop card, using some of the Designer Series Paper that is 15% off until August 2, Beauty Of The Earth. I used the one sheet, with one side on the front and the reverse decorating the inside. This is always a fun card to make.

Cajun Craze had not been a colour that I used frequently, until I ordered a pack of Beauty Of The Earth DSP, which features the colour in its paper. 

I paired it with Merry Merlot, another colour in the paper pack, more prominently featured in the reverse of the leafy print used on the front of the card.

 I selected 'Enjoy The Moment' for the 'pages', for the positive, uplifting sentiment messages. The botanical images are always a classic.

'Biggest Wish' is going to be well-used in my craft room, I can see. The greeting fitted so well onto the label combo from Stitched So Sweetly dies with room for embellishments as well.

I'm looking forward to hopping over to see Sharon
