Dream Valley Challenge #14 - Colour Challenge: lemon, lime & orange

Good morning bloggers!  There's a new challenge at Dream Valley today, and it's something a little 'zingy' for you.....a colour challenge:


Our sponsor this week is Stitchy Bear, and one lucky winner will receive a $10 voucher for their store!

The Design Team were given some images to play with, and this is what I made:

I used the Stitchy Bear image Fairy Moon, and some yellow and orange patterned papers, green fluid chalk for the edges, green ribbon and yellow flowers. I took the black from the colour photo above and used that in the sentiment and of course the silhouette image. Some liquid pearls finish off the card.  I've never made a circular easel card before, and I don't usually use such bright colours, but it's nice to try something new.

DPs: DCWV, Pocket Full Of Posies papers
Nestabilities dies:  Lacey Circles and Deckled-edged ovals
Sentiment: from computer, font is Noir-et-blanc
Pearls: Viva pearl pen
All flowers and ribbon from my craft stash.

I'd like to enter this card in these challenges:

Hope you haven't got a headache from the bright colours, he he. 

Happy Crafting!
