Punched Posies Challenge Card

Hi all, 
I've just popped in quickly to upload my card for this week's
Just Add Ink Challenge # 50 . This time it's a colour challenge.  I looked at the colours and said to myself -  nope, not doing this one - went and put on a load of washing and my mind wandered back to the challenge (my mind does this often when I'm doing something boring).  So I had an idea, quickly sketched it before I forgot (another thing my mind does often) and then got to work.  Approximately 20 minutes later, this was the result.  I am very happy now that I decided to do the challenge because I love how this card turned out and I got to use my brand spanking new Pinking Hearts Border Punch  from the Summer Mini - which is gorgeous.  Here are the colours, (it was the Elegant Eggplant that threw me),  I've mentioned before that I'm not a big fan but hey, that's what challenges are all about.


And here is my card...


Stamps:  Punched Posies, Tiny Tags
Paper:  Elegant Eggplant, So Saffron, Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz
Ink:  Riding Hood Red, So Saffron, Pear Pizzazz,
Accessories:  Fancy Flower Punch, 3/4" Circle Punch, Pinking Hearts Border Punch,  Jewellery Tag Punch, Regals Brad

Thanks for dropping by and taking look,
Sue

Hi Sue, Couldn't believe when I saw you on the colour challenge, I have just started doing challenges and love it. I have only had a blog for the last month so it is nice to finally find you on the net. Love your card

Love this card Sue...it has the wow factor. I was unsure on the colours at first as well, but I'm loving what everyone has come up with!
