Blue, green and orange...

Both of these cards use colour challenges with blue, green and orange in!

This first one is for Viva La Verve's Sketch #4 for February - a CAS sketch which I just had to add more to! I used the colours from ColourQ's Challenge #125 and SUO Challenge #39 to make a birthday card. Here's the colours from ColourQ - they just reminded me of paisley printed material, so dug out my unused, new Spiced Paisley set for this one.

Here's the colour inspiration from ColourQ.


And here's my card for it.

My next card is for Waltzing Mouse's Sketch Challenge #86 and Play Date Cafe's Challenge #120. I'm not quite sure about this card - can't quite work out what I don't like about it to fix it, but it will do for now! I really like this colour combo, but there's just something about it that isn't right!

Here's Play Date Cafe's colour inspiration picture.


And here's my card for it.

And that's all from this post folks! Thanks for stopping by!
