Make It Colourful!

Now, I'm not sure if I've got the right interpretation of the MAKE IT COLOURFUL challenge of Colour Cast/Reflection but I thought I'd have a go and submit my first entry to their interesting and challenging challenge!

So, with the idea of reflecting the colour from the background (the papers I used) into the main subject, here is my card


I've used Maise Sitting Pretty from Lili of The Valley, and have watercolour painted her using Distress Ink ReInkers.  The rather bold papers are from Craft Too, the card stock is Bazzil.  Martha Stewart border punch (done twice - thanks Delphine for the inspiration for that) and Anita's ribbon for the lilac flowers.

I may get disqualified for not understanding the challenge properly but hey, I've had a go!  Here is the image in close up.


Thanks for dropping by.  Hugs Sxx
