JAI #352 Colour

Hello there,
well I had a HUGE week at work so I am really pleased that it's almost the weekend. Sleeping in and catching up on crafting are very high on the schedule! Before things went crazy busy I managed to make my card for this week's new Just Add Ink challenge. This week Nikki wants you to Just Add a Colour Combo. It kind of make me think of spring! Here are the colours.
And here is what I came up with.

I couldn't resist playing with colour gradients again - so an ombre effect for the background was my first goal. But first, to add interest I sponged the background with versa mark through a stencil, clear embossed it, then used the sponge brayer. I cut a circle offset from this and replaced it with a sentiment panel, framing the sentiment with an abundance of Flirty Flamingo flowers. A little strip of DSP to one side adds some contrast and a scattering of sequins add some bling. 

This is a lovely colour combination and the design team have out done themselves so don't forget to check them all out and then come back and join us!
