52CCT - Colours .....

.... Good morning all!  It's time for our colour challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and Ruth has picked some fabulous colours for us.  Here's my card (the correct version), see note below:

Stamps: My Favourite Things - Musical BG, Seasonal Sentiments, Cheerful Christmas Greetings, Ornament Banner Builder
Inks: Stampin' Up! - Gumball Green, Melon Mambo, Raspberry Ripple, Lucky Limeade; Memento - Angel Pink
Dies: Spellbinders - Labels 25 (S5-077) #3 & 5, Adorning Labels 25 (S5-210) #4, Lacey Ovals (S4-314) #4
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Lucky Limeade, Raspberry Ripple; SU DP - Melon Mambo; Gems; SU Marker - Gumball Green

Aren't the colours just fabulous?  I've managed to use them all in my card, but you only have to use three.  I used the sketch from this week's My Favourite Things Wednesday Sketch Club - MFTWSC#175 for the layout.  I created the bottom layer by adhering strips of card and design paper.  I stamped the musical background in lime green onto white card and because this is a very large die I had to cut it on an angle.  I also used one of the dies from my new Adorning Labels 25 set - I really like the delicate filigree pattern.  I stamped the musical background again in pale pink, die cut a smaller panel and then stamped the sentiment.  I edged the die cut with green marker pen and added the lacy oval behind, and adhered it to the card with dimensional tape.  On the inside I cut a mat layer of lime green card and on the white panel stamped some hanging ornaments and finished with a simple sentiment.

Our guest designer, Judy of Created Just 4 U, and the rest of the design team have more inspiration cards using these colours.  Really looking forward to seeing what you make.

Edited:  Just a quick note to say that the picture below was the one I originally posted on this page, but I realised that I'd forgotten to include the little gems!! Silly me.

It's Mother's Day on Sunday and I'm so pleased to have my Mum over here with us - she gets to have two celebrations this year!!  I'm not sure what we'll be doing, but being able to share the day with my Mum makes it an extra special day for me.  That's all for now.  See you soon.
