Hello Love - A Little Birdie Told Me ... Card

by Joanne James12. November 2014 09:07

It's Wednesday and time for this week's challenge over at Colour Me...! where we have a striking palette for you to work with this week:

   

This week's colours put me in something of a quandry: I am completely into Christmas makes at the moment, but these colours really weren't shouting Christmas at me, not even in an unconventional sense! I also considered a fall/autumn themed card, but in the end decided to make a card to add to my 'ready to go'stash that could be used for a number of different purposes.  So here's today's card:

I used this week's sketch over at CAS(E) This Sketch for my layout and the hostess set 'Hello Love' which has the cute little birds in it and decided to make a clean 'collage style' card using the various images in the set and creating some subtle layering of the various elements. I used my Night of Navy Stampin' Up! Blendabilities pens to colour in the bird and also to colour in the words 'hello love' which would otherwise be on the cloud, as I wanted my sentiment to be contained within the word bubble. This is such a fun set as it comes with a number of possible second sentiments, so that you could make the card into a number of different types of congratulations card. I haven't actually stamped the inside, although I think I might add the birthday sentiment as this card would make a fun card for my nephew's birthday next week (according to my daughter!)

So what do you think? Feel free to leave a comment on today's card, before hopping over to check out the amazing cards by the rest of the Colour Me...! team:

Claire
Hayley
Julia
Sherrie
Tara
And our talented guest designer for November - Anita Bowden
 
We look forward to seeing your striking creations - what do these colours inspire you to create? 
 
I have another busy day today, with my monthly Project Life class this afternoon, a team meeting this evening and a wreath class tomorrow (I'll be sharing some of these outputs later this week!) Back tomorrow with my card for this week's one layer challenge over at Less Is More; until then, happy stampin'!
