SWUS colour challenge

Hello is Sunday and that means one thing and one thing only, a new challenge has been posted over at SWUS!! Last week we had Christmas and this week we have a colour challenge. I like those the best. Hop over to check the inspirational picture. Gorgeous gerberas one of my fave's flowers in hot pinks, oranges and reds. Is mum's birthday on the 22nd of August so decided to make her a card in this weeks colours.

This card is quite different for me and not one I would like to receive myself if I am honest , but you see this is the perfect card for my mum. Firstly she adores flowers I mean she really , really likes flowers. She has the biggest collection of house plants( she s very proud of it too) I have ever seen (apart from when visiting a botanical garden) and buys fresh cut flowers every week without fail. So I thought what better card then this lavish bouquet of wonderful roses. Firstly I have stamped each rose and cut out, then I cut my pot out of some chocolate chip card stock and started arranging the blooms until I was happy. Some flower heads were popped onto dimensionals and some were simply glued down. Colours I have used here are Pink Passion, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red and Old Olive. A Rose is a Rose is the beautiful stamp set, I have also used the gorgeous Frame With a Flourish to underline the word Mama which was stamped with the Short Order Alphabet.Old Olive grosgrain was tied in a neat bow and placed amongst the flowers. I hope you are inspired to give those colours a go I would love to see what you come up with. Ok have a wonderful Sunday see you again soon. Hugs Monica xxx
