JAI #105 Colour Challenge

Card Challenge
JAI#105 Colour Challenge

Well yes this is my second post for the day as this is the second Challenge I managed to get done yesterday. This time Just Add Ink have decided on a colour challenge. I do like these challenges, makes me step outside my square and use colours I might not use.
These are the colours for the challenge. So off I went, not quite sure what I had in mind, but something always gets created. I did want to make some of the paper roses that I haven't made for a while so that was my starting point.

Here is my card.
I have used my Bigshot alot with this card. Firstly the Dots embossing folder for the background, then the Leaves die for my leaves and the Circles die for my circles. The Roses are hand made and I have used the retired stamp "Birthday Wish" for my saying. I have also scored the leaves for a nice effect.

So thanks for stopping by and don't forget to scroll down so you can check out my other Challenge of a Scrap Layout adding Holiday photos.
