W Plus 9 - Colour Cue Challenge

Hi Peeps! I have been thinking about these Color Cue colours at W Plus 9 for a while .... (quite a while... the challenge closes in 2 days :0)!

I tried a few different ideas, but always felt that the end result was too 'rich' and overwhelming - it needed lots of white.

So in the end - this is where it went:


And it really felt better with all the lovely clean 'breathing space' in there to me :0)


The flower was made with Beautiful Blooms Dies, the circles are stamped with the Embellishments stamp set and heat embossed.

Thanks for peeking in - I'm flying through here! School calls and we'd like to finish up because it's my birthday - wooohoooo! :0)

Have a totally fantastic day Peeps!
