My Wonderful Friend






Here is the latest installment in the Kristina Werner's challenge cards. This week the inspiration came from the following picture:




And here is my card:





The close up at the top of this post shows the detail better. I find these colour challenges a bit of an adventure. Most of the time I have no idea what direction I will go in. First of all I get all the colours out on the table together and see if anything obvious screams at me. But most of the time it doesnt, and I just start playing with all the colours, and my favourite stamps of the moment. This time I thought I could use the Really Rust die-cut large circly-flower thingy from the "Round Up" Simply scrappin' pack.. I've been dying for a chance to use it, and this colour challenge was the perfect opportunity. Overall Im happy with how it all came together... it turned out to be a surprise for me too! But as luck would have it, halfway through I remembered that tomorrow I am meeting my friend Margy for a belated birthday lunch, and this card will be perfect for her. That's if I can bring myself to part with it! LOL!

Have a lovely day you guys!
