Colour Challenge

It's Tuesday again!
That means it's the Color Challenge over at the Outlawz and this week's colour choice was mine!

I took this picture at the RHS Flower show at Tatton Park, Cheshire, in the summer (what summer, lol!) and Guylou worked her magic and got the colours selected - she's so clever!
FOr my card I used the beautiful clothes peg fairy image from our sponsor this month, Inky Impressions.

I coloured the image with Promarkers, as usual then cut it out using a Spellbinders Label die which I inked the edges in green. I matted up some cute flowery paper onto some scarlet card for my background, the maple leaves are cut with a punch and the large leaf is cut with a die cut and the run through a rippler, the centre has been lined with green gems. I found some cute fabric butterfiles and the red bow in my stash a.nd then finished off with the graduated red pearls from Mei Flower who do some great bling at very reasonable prices.

Thanks for stopping by I really appreciate it and would love you to leave a comment!
