Color Challenge #7

Jan had given me this picture of Joy back before Christmas. I kept looking at it, trying to decide how to scrap it. What colors to use. Confused and not knowing, I'd put it away. Dig it out, put it back. Hate it when nothing inspires me!

Marjorie solved that little problem this morning with her color challenge! This week's colors were Buttercup, Lilac Mist, Garden Green and Bamboo. Plus one additional color of our choosing. I chose Petal. I used Garden Green as the base color of cardstock, then used the Paper Garden paper pack. I cut out paper flowers using Colonial White, Buttercup and Petal, crumpled, sanded and Prisma Glittered them. Oh, and the Colonial White one, I used my Petal marker on to give it just a touch of color because it was too drab with just the Colonial White. I covered Dimensional Elements in cardstock. Used a Garden Green button with white waxy flax as the center of one and a spiral clip with a piece of white ribbon tied around it for the other. Found some 3-D butterflies and dragonflies in my stash and added them as well. Letters are white Thickers that I also had in my stash.

For the card, I had gotten Tinkerbella a couple of weeks ago and STILL not used her. Bad Sue!! So she got put to good use this morning as well. Doodle Alphabet was used for the corner flourishes and "wish" Tinkerbella has Diamond and Gold Stickles along with various colored pencils. I used my scallop scissors from 100 years ago to cut the Garden Green cardstock!
