Colour Q Challenge 197

I have been an admirer of the colourQ  Royal Court Design Team long before I started to blog - which incidentally is only a few weeks ago! 

Choosing a colour combination when making a card is so difficult but these clever ladies come up with something original week after week and is a great inspiration to us all.

Well, at last, I thought that I would take the plunge and enter one of their challenges hoping that my interpretation of the colour palette comes up to scratch.

This is what I have come up with . . . . 

Supplies: Clearly Besotted Stamps

Stamps sets - 'You Are',   'Background Builders',  Butterfly Wishes
 Die - "Butterfly Wishes Die Collection'
Sentiment - 'Happy Everything'

I started off by randomly stamping the flower in Brilliance 'Sunflower Yellow' and then used the small circle stamp to fill in the centre of the flower using Versa Magic  'Pink Grapefruit'.

I then tried to balance the colour by using the circle stamp again - this time using Memento 'Bamboo Leaves'.

The butterfly die was stamped over with a co-ordinating spotted stamp from  'Background Builders' another very useful set from Clearly Besotted.

This was then mounted onto green card and finished off with some yellow ribbon and two green pearls.

I do hope that this qualifies!

Thank you for visiting
