Reverse Confetti May Colour Challenge


Well, it's the 16th of the month, which means that
there is a new Colour Challenge up on the Reverse Confetti blog today! 


I love this colour combo!
Here's the card I made with it:


I thought the feather from Peacock Pretties would look fabulous in these colours!
I stamped them onto my vintage cream background & added the sentiment in black.
I pressed some pink ink onto my craft mat & added some water.
With a brush, I painted the the bottom edges of my card.
Then, I repeated the process with orange to paint around the top.
Some sequins (including blush & pink peonies from Pretty Pink Posh) finish it off.





Be sure to check out the Reverse Confetti blog to see what
the other designers created using this colour combo!

Thanks for looking!
