Colour Combo

Play Date Cafe's challenge this week was to use colours that are amongst one of my favourite colour combinations so I couldn't resist any excuse to use some more of those lovely K and Co papers!

That said, I DID struggle a bit with the layout of this card, mainly because I couldn't decide where to put the greeting and worse, couldn't even decide on what greeting to use!

I have found that the problem with making cards for charity and selling to a limited audience is that you never know what kind of greeting they want on what type of card - So I always try in the main to leave the inside blank and put on a lot of cards an 'all purpose' greeting in the hope that I will please somebody and tempt them to put their hands in their purses/pockets!!


White was not in the four colour challenge but I hope I'll be forgiven for the use of the spotty flower as I did manage to incorporate the other shades of blue, teal, spice and dark brown!
