colouring it up with the colour suite

Hello! Happy SPRING (it's snowing as I write this, I'm shooting for the power of suggestion by capitalizing the spring...)!

My friend Summer Fullerton does a monthly challenge on the Scrapbook and Cards Today blog which is an offshoot of her column in the same magazine. She asked me to play along this month. I did it because I love Summer. Colour challenges always freak me out. I can do challenges like no one's business, but colour ones are tricky for me for some reason.

That being said, I really had fun with this. The colours were super out of my box, but put them all together and they really worked well. I made this card and pushed paper for a couple of hours, nothing really looking right. When I finally added the kelly green "friend," it gelled and all was good in the world.

Supplies: Cardstock by Bazzill; Patterned Papers by Jillibean Soup, Elle's Studio and Echo Park Paper; Die cut by Jillibean Soup; Paper Twine, Chipboard, Mist by Maya Road; embossing powder by American Crafts; Ink by Tsukeniko; adhesive; vintage book page; font is Allura.

So thank you for asking me to play along Summer, I'll consider it again in the future! ;)

Note my Canadian spelling of the word colour, a nod to you Catherine!
