Celebrate - Kristina's Colour Challenge #54

WOW!!!! It seems like forever since I've done one of the amazing Colour Inspiration Challenges set by the AWESOME Kristina!!!

I wasn't sure how I was going to go with this one... it's got some pretty bright colours to work with, but I managed to come up with a little something.

Sooooo... here is the challenge picture:-

Isn't that car seat cover DIVINE!!!!! Shame little people don't keep them looking like that!!! hahaha
The colours to use were Taken with Teal, Pumpkin Pie, Soft Sky, Green Galore and Whisper White.

And here is the card I made:-

Believe me when I tell you this is not what was in my head when I started. I was thinking of making a little boys card.... hmmmmmm... I'm thinking NOT now!!!!
I haven't actually used Taken with Teal before, and would you believe me if I told you I don't even own a Taken with Teal Ink Pad or Marker!!!!
I've made a card like this before here, and thought given the colours and brightness of the challenge, a nice SIMPLE card was the go.
I've got just the person to give this to so I hope SHE likes it.

Thanks for stopping by.
And I 'll be back soon with another card to share.


Here's what I used:-

Stamps:- Cheep Talk, Basic Phrases
Soft Sky (retired), Taken with Teal, Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White

Whisper White, Pumpkin Pie, Green Galore

Green Galore Button (Retired), Dimensionals.
