JAI 228 Just add a colour combo

Hello there,
well its been another busy week here BUT finally no one was sick this week - maybe winter is on its way out! We actually have flowers in the garden here so spring must be on the way too although the temperatures don't reflect it yet. So in the spirit of spring, and cause it gives me the chance to play with some more new stampin stuff ;) I have another flower card for you. This week at Just Add Ink we have a colour challenge for you from me! Here it is.

 I got to play with my new photopolymer background stamp set - love it!!

 Another week where I can't get the colour balance right for the inside!!! (Grrr)

I started out intending the card to be vertical but by happenstance had turned my gradient background horizontal and in one instant the layout changed. To do something different with the Blended Bloom flower I decided to step it up this week by colouring extra layers lifting them up with dimensionals. I trimmed out some stamped off leaves too for one side of the flower and added flags on the other side to balance it all out.

Hope you can join us this week and take the colours for a test drive. Do check out the rest of the DT for some fabulous inspiration.
