Inspirational colour challenge

Happy Tuesday friends,

Today starts  a new colour challenge at The Outlawz. It was my turn to choose the colour palette and this is the picture I decided on, for inspiration. You can choose any element from this for your card.

We don't have a sponsor this month, so Laurian is giving a $10 gift certificate for Raspberry Road Designs.

I love how the DT have made such different cards using this picture, so be sure to pop over and see what they have to inspire you.

I was inspired by the tree and the colours, so this is what I made.

Paper, I decided to use the flourishes from the tree and made my background.
Stamped the flourishes and then used Pan Pastels for colouring.

The image is a Hero Arts stamp, and I just lightly coloured the flowers.

Added a polka dot ribbon and some pearls.

Sentiment is also from Hero arts.



Will enter some challenges:
