Colour Q Challenge

Hello There Sweet Friends

I haven't joined in a creative challenge for some time now. I'm happy just making stuff as and when the urge arises these days. However, I was tempted to have a go at this week's Colour Q challenge.


And here's the card I came up with


I used the same flower die, the Memory Box Whimsy Circle, which I used in my previous post except this time, I filled in all the spaces. It meant cutting into three different colours of card and selecting the pieces from each to create a whole flower as above. So I have extras left over to use another day. The addition of a button not only finishes the design off, but adds the pink colour from the scheme.

Hi Paul, my apologies, it's a wee while since I visited (life and all that) but had to pop in and say how much I like this card ... it must have taken some time to put the flower together but it was well worth the effort. Have scrolled down and looked at several of your previous cards and they are all clean and stylish as promised in your header :) Elizabeth

Golly, that's a lot of detailed work, Paul! And it shares the same glorious base of white as the original, which just makes those colours sing. Lovely ...

Wow, this sure caught my eye....it's stunning! I bet it was relaxing putting the prices back in the flower ,love the two toned petals . Wonderful work.

Well worth the effort Paul. Funny enough I worked with similar colours in polymer clay but they did not turn out successful. And I like pink and green together - guess you have to get the right shade.
Miss you
Hugs, Neet xx

Always love your cards Paul, and this one is no exception - the flower looks so textured..it almost looks like it's made of fabric. Thanks for playing along at Colour Q this week!

That's beautiful in a very subtle way. The button is charming!
