The Challenge #72 Colours!

Happy Monday friends!! I hope all of you Moms and Grandmas out there had a wonderfully pampered day!!  I sure did!!



It is Monday and that means it is time for another fun challenge at The Challenge!  where I am blessed to be a guest designer this month : )  Lesley always selects such beautiful color combinations to inspire like this lovely one!!


I CASEd Kay Miller for my card design to join the Time Out Challenge.



First I applied some splatters from the"Snowing" stamp form Altenew.  Next I cut a square frame three times and glued it together for some nice depth.  Before attaching the square frame to my bard base I cut some flower sprays out of vellum and stamped just the stem and flower center from the stamp set.  On the reverse side of the vellum I applied bright yellow marker to give just a hint of color on the flower center.  I arranged the flowers over and under my frame and then attached it to my card.  Finally I cut and stamped my bird and popped it up with foam tape.  I wanted to pull in the dark Blue from Lesley's color line up so I used Pacific Point ink from SU for my sentiment.  Last but certainly not least! I applied Wink of Stella (love this product) to my bird and flowers for just the perfect amount of sparkle!

This card was given to my BFF yesterday while we played with paper together after a DELICIOUS! dinner she made for us : )

It's your turn!! please join us at The Challenge for this color challenge and then try your hand at CASEing Kay's card at Time Out.

Thank you for stopping by!  Have a wonderful day : )
