Colour throw down # 111

Happy Sunday All!

I hope the weather where you are is better than it is here. I`m frozen!!! It`s certainly more than autumnal. Cold, wet and miserable. Yuk!

Anyway to cheer us all up the girls at the Colour ThrowDown have given us some very bright cheerful colours to work with this week.
I love all these colours...just not sure if I like them together...

I have to admit to a bit of a struggle and a certain amount of lack of imagination with my card.
This is what I came up with,
I`ve had to substitute all the colours but these are the closest I could find.

I used a white card base. The pink DP is by Papermania ( I think) and is matted onto some bright blue card.
The frame is a little lighter than River Rock. I first ran some card through the Cuttlebug using the Swirls folder.
Then I cut out the frame using a nestie labels 4 die with a nestie oval die inside. The embossed finish gives it some definition I think.
I stamped my sentiment, by Flourishes, in Cyan onto white card and placed the frame over it using foam pads.
I`ve added a bright blue flower from my stash with a Papermainia pink glittered brad.

What should have been a really quick card turned out to be a marathon attempt this weekend. It`s been so busy here. Oh to be one of the idle rich!!!!Lol.

Thanks for popping in...Lynne xxx

  3. Very pretty card. The paper and the flower are so beautiful.

  4. I love the colours together - they're like the contents of a holiday suitcase! (the sort of holiday I never go on!) I like the ornate frame for the sentiment and that splashy flower - gorgeous card!
