May Colours

Miri has chosen the palette for this month's colour combo challenge over on The Daring Cardmakers and there's a gorgeous inspiration photo to go with it

Here's my card:
I've used;
Papers from the current Crafty Templates/Quirky Kit
Embossing folder from Crafters Companion
Coredinations card for the flowers, which I cut on the Silhouette cameo
Leaves are cut with a Spellbinders die
Ribbons, trims, lace and inks from my stash

This is Miri's inspiration photo:

The DCM blog looks stunning this week - please pop over and see what everyone has made using these gorgeous colours, and it would be fab if you'd join in with us this week

Thanks for looking

Fabulous card, Kathy - love the embossed beach huts (I have that folder, but haven't used it yet - you might have just inspired me to get it out) - good thoughts of summer coming x

Took my breath away with this...I find the colour challenges particularly hard!

Miri said...

Ohhhh, the beauch huts are great! I think you captured the colours and the beach/vacation mood very well.

They are gorgeous colours to work with Kathy and I do love that bunting. The beach huts are fab too.

Happy Bank Holiday. :)

I really love this card. The layout is fantastic, and I just love all the little elements you've incorporated, and the colours together just look great.
