Inkspirations Colour Challenge #20

Tomorrow is my daughter Alana's birthday, so I thought I would use this colour combo (Brocade Blue, Creamy Caramel, Choc Chip and Very Vanilla) from Keesh's latest challenge for the inspiration for her card. Blue is also one of Alana's favourite colours!

I really love Brocade Blue, I think it works so nicely with the earthy colours. I am a little sad that we will be saying goodbye to it later this year when the new Colour Collection is launched, although I do really like what is coming! I think the change will be good.

Another Clean & Simple sketch challenge. As soon as I saw the layout I knew I wanted to use a flower image across the bottom. I searched through my collection for an image that would suit and decided on this one. Do you remember this stamp set? It was a hostess set from last year's SU catalogue. It's been a while since it has seen ink — I think it works for this design and these bold colours.

The colours evolved somewhat, but began with white and the new in colour, Melon Mambo (only because I wanted to use the polkadot ribbon I had!). It needed something more, so I added some Elegant Eggplant to the mix to give it more interest.
I think the card is growing on me — might try a rectangular version sometime!

Have a great Easter, thanks for visiting :)
