Doubling up

When I'm short on time and inspiration I find that it's often very useful to combine a couple of challenges to come up with a quick and easy card....this is one of those times :) This card combines Jen's SFYTT for this week, as well as the Elite Colour Challenge. The colour challenge for this month is called Bali Breeze, and is based on the colours in the Bali Breeze DSP: Old Olive, Taken with Teal, Rose Red and the dreaded Pumpkin Pie....but I did it!!!!I used some of the Bali Breeze DSP, Eastern Blooms stamp set, as well as Wonderful Words. There's some Old Olive brads and the main flower image was embossed with clear embossing powder. All in all a very quick and easy card, though a little on the bright side!

OK, got tons to do today, but just a quick note to my American readers....Leslie commented on my use of the *In Colours* yesterday and I just wanted to tell you that we only get ONE SU! big catty per year and it comes out in April....so we won't get the new In Colours until next April. Also, our paper comes in a different size, A4 rather than letter, so even though it sold out in the States ours is a different size....though we still get the 12x12 the same as you guys. Hope that explains why we are still using the old In Colours over here....this is Australia and we're behind the rest of the world....LOL!!!! Personally, I'm looking forward to those new In Colours...they look awesome :)

Have a great day,

Thanks for the explanation about how your catalog year works! It's interesting how different the schedules are.

And yes, your card IS very bright. ;-) These are so NOT my colors, and I applaud you for the attempt!

I can think it might be nice to be 'behind' the rest of the world. Look at our mess!!! Anyway, I find your card so very unique. The colors are so wonderful together and I like what you did with the shapes too!
