Sweet Pea Stampers - Carnival Colours

Hiya folks!

Hey, guess what?? We actually saw the sun here yesterday!! Woah! So much so that I got one whole load of washing dried without the use of the poor old tumble dryer. A-MA-ZING! Trouble is, back to the wet stuff today - boooo!

So, I need the colours of this week's Sweet Pea Stampers challenge to cheer me up. We are celebrating Carnival season, and want to see your Carnival colours. Yum! I chose some bright, mostly primary colours here, with a bit of green and orange thrown in for good measure.

I have used 'Poppy Love' for my image on this card, coloured with my usual watercolour pencils, with stickles in her hair. For my layout I used the sketch at CRAFT:

I also followed the recipe over at Creative Inspirations: 5 flowers (ooops, more than 5 here!) 3 papers, 1 ribbon (small red bow). I have used my punches for the flowers, and a little sizzix tag die with my rather naff handwritten sentiment on. Wish I had nice handwriting! A few gems and a bit more stickles and job done.

Your turn now then - let's see all those yummy colours peeps!! For more inspiration from my DT sistah's, head over to the Sweet Pea Stampers Challenge Blog - there is some fabulous Entrants Candy up for grabs too!!
