Inkspirations Colour Challenge #94



Just love these bright, deep, rich colours together (not sure if you can have bright and deep rich together but it works for me lol).  They make you sit up and say "hello"!!  I paired them with a sketch by Chupa from a month or so ago as I loved it and had saved it in my sketch file.

I never have to twist my arm to make a card with a flower on it so this one was a lot of fun to create.  This PTI flower die is perfect for crimping so I did just that.  Kept the rest of the card pretty simple, and I'm loving the pops of colour against the white background :)

I'm saddened that my supply of this fabulous polka dotted ribbon is dwindling as I just love it.  Got a bunch of rolls at a dollar store and haven't found any more in any of the one's I've hit around here so I'm rationing it.

The rest of the Design Team has some fabulous cards for your inspiration.
