It's a COLOUR challenge at Shopping Our Stash

What a fabulous Thanksgiving day we had, lots of good food and great family!! As Canada celebrated Thanksgiving the U.S. celebrated Columbus day I hope it was awesome. If you were not celebrating any holiday I hope you had a wonderful weekend.

Shopping Our Stash challenge #273 is a Colour challenge, Alica has picked some awesome fall colours.  Now fall colours are one of my least favourite on the colour wheel but I dug my heels in and made it work. I guess that is why it's called a "challenge". Here is what I created.......



Here is the colour inspiration for you . 
I used a bundle set from Stampin'up that I have had since last year, I've used the flower dies but not the paper and it had every colour in the colour swatch. 


I carried the paper to the inside along with a flower, the sentiment was bought when I first started making cards. All the flowers were cut from scraps. The Thinking Of You was a die cut that was in my little box of treasures. (sometimes I cut several in different colours to see which I want to use)

I would like to enter this in 

Allsorts Challenge ~~ Colours of Autumn

WOW!! I too am surprised this are not your favorite colors so it's totally amazing how you made them work on this beautiful card. I have this die set and I love it, I should use it more often. Your finished inside is beautiful too, love the font of this vintage sentiment.
Hugs,
Maria.
PS. I hope you found out why you can't access my blog Barbara, I haven't done anything to change it, except adding that big picture of me on one of my races, I'm trying to find out how I can make it a bit smaller.
