One card, Two Challenges!

Hi Everyone,

Crazy HOT weather we are having here. Being that I am more of a cold weather girl, I am not over the moon like some. But I am glad that summer is finally here, and they are saying that it is going to be hot and dry! At least we should see less rain than last year. Too bad we don't have a pool at our new place!

Just a reminder to visit this post to see my new Workshop Walk-through for Stampin' Up! Demo's and leave me a comment with a new name to be entered in a contest to win a copy! And members of my team, you guys get a copy for FREE! Just one of the many perks to being on the "B Canadian" Stampers team.

Oh and this Sunday is my NEW Studio Grand Opening bash! RSVP if you can make it.

Okay, on to today's card. This one was created based on two challenges this week. Kristina Werner's colour inspiration challenge and Pals Paper Arts Sketch challenge. The colours were really challenging. There was a Bright bluish purple, and I decided to use Rich Razzleberry, Bashful Blue, a bright yellow (Crushed Curry), A medium blue (Ballet Blue), Certainly Celery and White. Plus I had to use a bit of black for the flowers outline. I coloured the flowers using a combo of markers and blender pens and ink from the top of my ink pad. I am not sure that I love this card. I think there are too many colours for my liking. Ah well, if you don't try you will never know!
