a color challenge. . . .

from the challenge blog Less is More:

My card includes most of the colors they are asking for:

A couple of weeks ago, I won this SSS Big Hello die on Kathy Racoosin's blog.  I used Derwent Inktense pencils to create the watercolor background from which it was cut.  The Mama Elephant femme frames dies were out of stock for a LONG time; but I was finally able to order them and have used the scalloped frame here.  The sentiment is from SSS, too.  I have a bag of miscellaneous sequins from years ago and found these flat sequins in it.  I added tiny dots of platinum Stickles to the centers of them.

Also sending this over to SSS Wednesday challenge where anything goes.

Thanks for visiting my blog!  I appreciate your kind comments and the time you take to make them.  :*)
