Inkspirations Colour Challenge #88

These were some bright colours and it took me a bit of thinking to put them together as they are far from my normal selection, but then that's why it's called a challenge, right?!  A kick in the butt keeps you on your toes, or in my case, leaves a bruise LOL! 

Since my mojo was awol, I opted to go CAS in the hopes I could make it work.  I used a CPS sketch from a few weeks ago as it was perfect for a bit of colour against a lot of white.  Pulled out this cute Studio G set, and my Twinkling H2O colouring wasn't all that swift....butt still being kicked LOL!  I bow in the general direction of this colour combo - it beat me fair and square!  Next week will I'll do better, promise :)

Think it's time to move on to the rest of the Design Team for some fabulous inspiration.


Each week Keesh will select a winner and an honorable mention and post their cards on the Inkspirations Challenge blog.  We'd love to see your card posted as a winner.

Have a great weekend!

Whoa those are some bright colors! I really shy away from brights, but when faced with them, I do the same as you and go CAS! It worked very well, and the little bird is so tropical and cute.

Marisa, this is too cute! Awesome sentiment! Your comment on my card made me laugh out loud, girl! Those skewed panels did give me a fit if that helps! I think I had the sizes off or something! Anyway, your card is adorable!
