Dainty Delight for Colour INKspiration 140

Welcome to the latest challenge at Colour INKspiration! This soft and sweet palette was chosen for us by Crew Member Lou Kitzelman.

If you haven't played with us before, we are a group of Stampin' Up Demonstrators from the South Pacific. Challenges are shown and entered via our Facebook Group page. If you don't belong, and would like to, click here. Don't forget to answer the three easy questions you'll be asked when you ask to join the group.

Each challenge, Top Picks and a winner are chosen by the crew and the winner offered a chance to Guest Design with us for a future challenge. We welcome Yvonne Spikemanns Van-Bruggan as our Guest Designer for this challenge.

If you don't have an exact challenge colour, feel free to replace it with whatever you have that's closest, for example Mint Macaron for Soft Sea Foam. Black, White, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Sahara Sand and metallics are free colours, as are flesh toned Stampin' Blends.

The colours seemed like a good option for flowers and a wooden fence idea. I'd seen a few of these lattice or trellis style cards appearing on the internet, so decided I'd give it a go.

Because I was looking at the idea of a vine climbing a fence, I added in some Timber 3D embossing on the card front. 

You can see how I made this card here:

We'd love to have you join in the challenge with us. Visit the Colour INKspiration site to check out the album of Crew Cards for inspiration. You can also add your entry there. We all enjoy seeing what you do with our colour palettes, so join in!
