Color Combos Galore - Inspirational Board 235

Hi Everyone

Welcome to Inspirational Board 235 "Sweet Indulgence"

As you can see from these gorgeous inspirational pictures its totally about indulgences. 
 Who would love nothing better than to be able to step into of these pictures and simply indulge themselves!
Well since some of us cannot we have to settle with creating something instead with these gorgeous colours that Janet has put together.

Fi's Design:
Inspiration Photo #1/Focus on Texture: Dry Embossing

Other Inspiration:
Inspiration Photo #1: banner (idea: headboard) ; Inspiration Photo #3: border punch (idea: tag borders) ; ribbon (ribbon on tags) ; doily (tag border pattern)

I also used a mix of papers here as well as the cherry blossom "The Crafter Workshop" template that I used with textured paste before I coloured it with inks.

Hidden underneath the strip of washi tape and icon sticker was one of those whoops moments.
 I did some stamping and it didn't work out so I had to hide it. 
 Thankfully mishaps can be hidden. Lol

The little rusty coloured flowers and branch were cut from an old Sassafrass paper, it was a good match for the copper in the palette.
