Live, love, laugh ...colour challenge

Good morning friends,
1 July, I can hardly believe it, but yes we are halfway through this year. Well it is Tuesday again and that means another  colour challenge  at The Outlawz.



This week Laurian has chosen the beautiful inspirational photo with colour palette and the easy twist to add pearls.








We are so lucky to have Bugaboo Stamps as our sponsor for this month, and the DT have mostly used one of their images, so please hop on over and have a look at the lovely cards. We would really love you to come and join in the fun.

For my card I have used the image 'Live, Love, Laugh" and this is my card.


Paper - Plain cardstock in the colours required, punched the corners.  Embossed a piece of white card with a Dutch Doobadoo stencil and then coloured it with Pan Pastels with the stencil still in place.
Image - I coloured with Distress Inkpads, and added pearls.
Added ribbon  with a bow.

I do love the simplicity of the card and I have had a number of people requesting cards without too much on, as they are concerned about posting. This size is also quite popular as opposed to the larger square cards.

Will enter the following challenges:
Opus-gluei challenge #186...All tied up
Quirky crafts challenge #13...stencils/or masks
Robyn's Fetish challenge #218...Stipes or Dots
The Crafters Café challenge 369,,,Polka dots and ribbon
 Inky Impressions challenge #165...Anything goes
 Nutcrafters challenge #71...Anything but square
 Penny's Paper-crafty challenge #183...Embossing ..heat or dry
Crafty Girls challenge #21...Anything goes
Crafting at the weekend challenge #3...Anything goes
Crafting from the Heart challenge #25...Anything goes
The Pink Elephant challenge #257
Bunny-Zoe's Crafts ...Layers
My Craft Creations...Anything goes
CCC Digi Creations challenge #4...Embossing wet or dry
Craft your passion challenge #220...Ribbon

That's all from me for now, have another card for tomorrow. Will see you then. Thanks for popping in and I do love it if you leave me a comment. I read all of them. Take care.

Love Ursula

Such a lovely simple card (that always sounds as if it doesn't take much trouble doesn't it?!?) with an emphasis on colour. Lovely muted shades. Thanks for popping into Opus Gluei and getting "tied up" with us.

Your card is simple but clean and has a real impact - love the embossing as well as the sweep of color across the dots. It really sets off your central image beautifully. very inspiring and thank you for getting all tied up with us at Opus Gluei.
