CD 381 - Just Because

Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge #381.

This week, there is a palette from which to choose at least three colours. Black, White and all other neutrals are free to use. 

I wanted to focus my cards around the Lagoon and Glacier colour scheme and then add a bolder colour for some of the flowers. I chose to use Nectarine and Lemonade for that purpose. 

There are several stitched dies used on my card - and I based the design on an older Mojo Monday sketch. The floral arrangement was coloured using Lagoon and Glacier for the leaves and Nectarine and Lemonade for the flowers. A few sparkles were added to the flowers. The outside edges of the large flowers along with the small flowers were brushed with the Clear Shimmer Brush.

The sentiment was stamped and then die cut using a curved banner die. 

Come and join us at Colour Dare and show us how you use the palette shown above.
