The Outlawz...Colour challenge

Good morning blogging friends,
After 3 days of almost non stop drizzle and rain over the weekend, we are having some lovely bright sunshine to dry everything out.  At least the gardens are rejoicing and the lawns are lovely and  green.

Tuesday is the  colour challenge at The Outlawz and this week we have a very bright palette chosen by Roxann, with a lovely inspirational photo, with the twist being "don't be square"...Make a square card or project.

There are some wonderful cards made by the DT for your inspiration, so please go over and have a look then come and join us. We are seeing some really lovely and original cards in our weekly challenges.

I have made a square card, using just a strip of DP in the 3 colours. I stamped my cardstock with a flourish in cranberry ink. Cut and embossed a shape with a Nestability and put it through the Cuttlebug. Cut a tag for the sentiment and punched a heart in it. Added a big bow with a button and some twine. Making the card was quite quick, choosing the colours took a little longer.

I will enter this in some challenges:

Gosh! It's so weird for me to read about "green lawns" and "gardens" here in your post. This morning it is 2 degrees (-16.6 C)here! Your card is beautiful. I love the background you created. This card has such a sweet, romantic feel to it. Hope you are doing well! Hugs, Curt

what a great use of colour! It is always a bit outside the comfort zone to put the orange with pink, but it so works!
