Vibrant Italian Pottery

I love the SCS Inspiration Challenge. It's one of my favorite weekly challenges. I don't always get to participate, but I surely love it when I can. This week I had a little heads up, as Stef asked me to make a sample for a site I recommended: Italian Pottery Outlet.
I love the vibrant hues in all of the items found at Italian Pottery Outlet.

I used the Berries and Buds Wreath Set from Rubber Stamp Tapestry for my "plate" and then added MFT's die for the plate's gold edge. The button on the bow is a beautiful grape color that matches the grapes in the stamped panel. Looks a little dark here.

I had another "plate" made with the orange and red leaves in it too, and my DD nixed that one. Said it was too mismatched with too many colors. So I deferred to her fashion sense and made one without the red and the leaves. :)

Thank you for your visit today. I hope you will leave a comment so I can return the visit!
