I decided that I needed to be challenged so…. I entered a colour challenge! These are the colours that had to be used in making a card. Let me say, these are not colours that I would group together. (Well maybe two or three together but not 5! Plus I added another colour – Confetti White!) In the end I made two cards. Mmm, the colour combo does grow on you 🙂
The first card I made, I used a retired stamp set and thought I had better do another one using a current set. Same colours but two cards that a poles apart.
Odd, but it isn’t my kind of Style but I am sure that my mother would have loved it. Can you see what I did with the punch? Let me show you…
Punched through the card front and added the sentiment to the inside! Different, eh?
Used a few dimentionals to give height to the sentiment. Added the yellow card to conceal the ribbon edges. Also added another yellow strip and flowers. There is still room to write a message.

Phew….. Now for CARD #2
The Ladies in my Tuesday class will be making a card similar to this one. The layout and the technique. Oops, I didn’t take a picture of the inside… it has the sentiment inside the card.
So have the colours grown on you? Maybe I will use the combo to make a CLASS card? Mmm, what do you think Ladies?
