Colour challenge at The Outlawz

Good morning blogging friends,
The last Tuesday of May and we are still having relatively mild weather for winter, but best I don't say it out loud. With day temps of 22 to 24 deg.C and the nights between 6 and 9 deg. I can handle winter.

Today is another special colour challenge at The Outlawz. You get to choose from 5 colours, so that is quite easy. The colour palette and photo were chosen by Laurian, with the twist ..make it a celebration...

This is the last week of sponsorship from Sandi's Samples and the DT have made lovely cards for you to see.

For my card I chose to use Certainly cerise, Sparkle blue and Sage green.

Paper - I used a Dutch Doobadoo stencil and Pan Pastels to create the background paper.

Image - This was a new release at DS4J on Sunday...'Now let's see' and you can find it HERE. It is coloured with distress inks, added some pearl maker and bling. Cut out and mounted on an oval scalloped diecut, which was also coloured with Pan Pastels.

Sentiment - Used part of a CB embossing folder and added some gems to that.
A ribbon and bow to finish.
