DYSU: Mustard, Mauve & Pink

This week's challenge over at DYSU is a colour challenge:
Mauve, Mustard and Pink!

When I heard what the colour combo was I thought 'Yuk'!! But I have to say I was pleasantly surprised with the outcome.  I love how challenges get you to work outside your comfort zone.  I went for bright colours instead of pastels, hope that's ok.

I used a Meljen image: A Girl and her Kitty, available from Whimsy Stamps one of today's sponsors.

I used this weeks sketch at Card Patterns.  But turned it upside down and took a bit of a liberty with the sentiment flag!

I used a luxurious piece of velvet ribbon that is so soft!

Today's Sponsors are:

Have a lovely day and be sure to link up your creation to the DYSU blog!
