As You See It 156 - DT card

Welcome to another challenge at As You See It. Our last challenge - how to restore your mojo - produced some great cards and some even better ideas on what to do when your mojo deserts you.
This week, we have a striking colour challenge for you.

Interesting colours, are they not? At first, I was a bit stumped about what to do with them as they're a bit out of my comfort zone but that's the point of a challenge!

Sitting on my desk was the Beautiful Bouquet bundle I recently purchased. I've been trying it out in different ways but I'd not yet made a bunch of flowers with it. I wasn't even sure these colours would make a bunch of flowers but it turns out they do.

I'd overlooked the teeny tag and the various words that fit it which are part of this set. I like the little 'for you' and I'll leave the inside unstamped at this time because I think this is a card that could have a lot of uses: birthday, thank-you, get well or even congratulations.

We'd love to see how you see this set of colours. You can join us over the next fortnight up until 11.55 p.m. Wednesday 23 August PST.

If you live in New Zealand and don't have a Stampin' Up Demonstrator, I'd love to be yours. You can ask questions or shop with me from anywhere in New Zealand. Click on the link to my Facebook page in the sidebar of this blog.

  1. What a gorgeous card! In fact, having seen this it's hard to imagine any other way of using the colours - I kind of wish I hadn't looked!

  2. Thanks for the compliment - I think :-)

  3. Love this Jan - these colours are perfect for a bunch of flowers and I love the subtle brick stencilling behind. Love the addition of the teeny tag and twine too!
