Another Tuesday colour challenge at The Outlawz

Good morning friends,
I hope the week has started off on a good note for you. I forgot to wish my Canadian friends a happy day yesterday. I do hope you all had a great day.


This week at The Outlawz I had the honour of choosing the inspirational photo,  colours and twist for the Colour challenge It is again  one of the special challenges, and I give you one colour, you choose 2 more from the photo and decide on your own twist...now is that not a great idea. So here is the photo...lots of colours to choose from.





 We are still sponsored by Nice Crane Designs and the digital image I have used is one from a new set called Little Workers and can be found HERE I think this is such a cute set, so will use the others soon.




This is the card I came up with, and my colours used are Purple, dark red and light turquoise. The twist is to add embossing.

 
I made my background paper by running a stencil through the cuttlebug and then going over that with my Pan Pastels. The stencil is from Joycrafts.
Matted the image onto a red Nellie Snellen die cut.
Sentiment is computer generated and attached with ribbon and  a cupcake brad.
3 purple buttons to finish
 
I do hope you will check out the lovely cards made by the DT and we would really love you to come and join in this fun challenge.
 
I will enter this in some challenges.

Love Ursula
