These colours will wake you up!




Another week, another Play Date Cafe challenge to feel excited about. Three colours this week and you couldn't find more vibrant, in-your-face, wakes-up-your-eyes hues if you tried. All these colours on their own would immediately grab your attention. They lie opposite each other on a colour wheel, which means they bring out the vibrancy in each other.


Anyhoo, I decided to make a tri-fold card for this challenge. I folded over some patterned Basic Grey paper from their funky range, then trimmed a semi-circle from the top end, before scoring and folding. I punched a couple of border strips to create the paper clip. Then with some stamping and nesties dies, I created the scalloped designs for both outside and inside the card. Hope you like :)
