Another special colour challenge

Good morning friends,
Winter here in my area hasn't been tooo bad so far, but we are having a good bout of it at the moment. It is freezing and today will be only 12 deg. and last night was -1, when we have been having 18 to 21 deg the last while....Oh well..we are heading the right way...towards summer. Just have to be patient.

On to the business of the day...the colour challenge
at The Outlawz. This week Lindsay chose the inspirational photo for the challenge which is a special one again. You get to choose 2 of the colours from the photo together with the given colour ...tomato red, and you also decide on the twist....this is a lot of fun.




Our sponsor for this month is Bugaboo Stamps and some of the DT have used these images on their cards this week.

We would love you to come and join in this fun challenge, just let us know when you do...which colours you have chosen and what your twist is.


This is my card and what I used. My choice of colours, Tomato Red, med green and black. Twist is a fancy fold card.


 
The card is a centre-step easel that I saw on the internet, but seemed to have lost the link. Will try and find it later.
 
Paper - Red and black cardstock. DP is from a paper bloc - Vintage 1, by Pickup.  
Image - Silhouette - Butterfly flowers from Bugaboo and you can find it HERE.
I cut it out and mounted onto a Nellie Snellen diecut. 
For the flourishes and corner I used Lea'Bilities from Leane Creativ. 
Sentiment if from Whiff of Joy.
Added a few pearls.
