Soft Suede Debut

This is the first time I have actually used Soft Suede. I tried to use it a few weeks ago for a scrapbook page, but it just didn't work. But today I think it worked so well as part of this weeks ColourQ Challenge.
These colours scream masculine to me, and I guess the gorgeous jacket in the picture helps that thought! One of my initial ideas was to use these for a boys card with lots of stars. But this is what eventuated. Simple and clean lines. No sponging as has been the case more often than not recently. The large flower from True Friend was stamped in Night of Navy and Tangerine Tango and fussy cut. The Tangerine Tango centre was popped up with dimensionals, and the whole flower was attached to the card with the same. This is the first time I've pulled out Chit Chat rubons too, which were in the Summer Mini.
I really like these colours together. I just might have to pull them out again...
Thanks for visiting.
