Crafty Cardmakers Rain/Flowers

Had just printed this image and papers off from my frou frou digikit when testing it out on the printer and saw the latest challenge on Crafty Cardmakers. The theme was Rain and Flowers.

The colours are a little bright for me (again... must be the sunshine earlier this week) and I've used two patterned papers - goodness I'll have to go and lie down in a darkened room.

But they are in the kit together and  they are supposed to match.......I'm just normally not that daring! I even die cut the leaves from some DCWV glitter paper because it was the best colour match - pattern, bling and bright colours, whatever next!!
Don't you just love that frond die? It's from Memory Box and cuts like a dream.

Cindy, I have just giggled my way through your post! I hope you are getting over the shock of using more than one patterned paper!

Fabulous creation. Love the colours, even if you do find them a bit bright, they certainly brightened the end of my day.

Cute image, and a great sentiment too, and shock, horror, amazement, someone actually read our requirements, so thank you.

And BTW absolutely digital is fine. As long as it had what we asked digital, scrap LO, mixed media, anything would be fine!

Hey Cindy - your colors might be bright for you but I think they are beautiful! Love your image.

Josephine said...

Absolutely stunning! I love the elegance of the card. I always love bright colours, but it's sometimes hard to do 'elegant' and 'bright' at the same time, but you've done it beautifully!

Thanks for joining us at Crafty Cardmakers.

I think it's good to break out the colour once in a while and this looks FAB! The flowers look totally tropical and totally lovely! x
