The Paper Players 393 - Design Team Card

Claire has a bright and cheery colour challenge for us this week at The Paper Players.

These colours shouted floral at me and that lead me, once more, to Beautiful Bouquet. I used my new Stamparatus to create the ombre sentiments in the background with a stamp from Perennial Birthday.

I also confess to not owning anything Strawberry Slush, since that colour predates my Stampin' Up - or indeed, stamping anything - days. Melon Mambo seemed to be a reasonable substitute. I did however have a stash of things Hello Honey, including some twine that I pulled some strands out of to make the bow. Stampin' Blends once more came to the party and coloured in some rhinestones Pumpkin Pie.

We'd love to see what you do with this cheery combination of colours. Does it shout floral to you too? Or maybe something else?

Pop over and see what the rest of the team have done with Claire's colour challenge at The Paper Players
