Laughter .....

.... once again Colour Q have come up with really vibrant colours for their challenge - cQc94 - orange, green, yellow, raspberry and white!! Wow!  And I love the inspiration picture - really unusual ice-lolly shapes!

While I really adore these colours, I decided to go for a clean and simple look with a white base and colour accents.

I've used my nesties to cut out a number of shapes from Stampin' Up! card stork - so the colours are correct!  I don't have the shade of green named in the list, so I've substituted Garden Green and I've used my ink to incorporate that into the card.



The card layout is based on sketch FTL149 from Clean and Simple Stamping - and I've been quite faithful to the sketch too.
 

Stamps: Stampin' Up! - En Francais; Hero Arts - "L"
Inks:  Stampin' Up! - Garden Green
Spellbinders:  Dahlia (S4-191) dies # 1, 2, 3; Fleur de Lis Border (S4-213)
Accessories:  Card from stash

Yesterday's performance of Bugsy Malone was amazing!  The children were much more comfortable in their roles and they gave fantastic performances.  We all enjoyed the show - and I know I'm biased, but Kathryn really is a star! :)  What's even nicer is that the weather has been lovely for the last couple of days - we're in danger of having a summer.  Yippee!!

Mum has arrived home safely - they called when they got in - a really quick run down too.  Mum had a good rummage through my card stash and has taken quite a supply with her - which gives me a great reason to make more - thanks mum!!  Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Lovely card Deborah, you've used the colours well. I'm not sure about these colours they are a bit bright for my liking so probably sit this one out:)

Lovely CAS card Deborah, the colours are quite tricky and you've done a fab job with them!

This is a lovely interpretation of the FTL sketch. I like the way you went for splashes of those bright colours instead of block colour.

Glad the show went well again. The skies have turned blue here too and I've forgotten what to wear in the sunshine!

That forked ribbon element is superbly carried with your graphic interpretation & your use of those colours very interesting indeed.
