Bright Colours Chase Away the Grey

I love a great colour challenge!  It inspires me to go through my stash and find papers and embellishments that work.  Instead of reaching for my newest papers or my favourite companies, I find that I end up using a mix of papers and in the end it feels great to use the supplies I have at hand.

This week over at the Inspired Scrapper we have this great photo as inspiration.   I love how bold the colours are and seriously how beautiful is that arrangement.   The photo seems to be the perfect cure for a rainy grey day.

Here is my take on the colour challenge.  I stuck with the main colours in the inspiration photo, dark brown, fushia, red and green.  Since the colours are so bold, I kept the embellishments to a minimum and just added some inking and a few buttons.

Here is a quick thank-you card.  I needed a card on behalf of the preschool
so I thought a pierced old fashioned school house fit the bill :)
One of the other papers in the collection had a little picture of an school house.  I used that
to cut out a larger version, and then added some glitter and a thank-you heart.
