This week is 'In colour' Week

I have decided that this week I am going to focus on this years in colours. I haven't used them very much so some of this is a first for me, particularly the greens!

Its a bright morning and the sun is trying really hard to get through. The daffodil yesterday really inspired the colour choice for this card, I don't have an actual daffodil stamp, pity really. This is a sunflower but the yellow for the flowers is 'crushed curry' must admit I use this one a lot.

The card base and layer is in Mint Macaron - I do generally call it mint macaroon but hey ho. Its a very soft colour and works really well with the neutrals and pastels but I wanted something a bit different.

 The flowers from Grateful Bunch have been stamped in early expresso then coloured with a blender pen in crushed curry. The centre has a mixture of crushed curry and crumb cake then I have covered it with some of the fine tip glue. This when dry is shiny and raised. I have actually fussy cut all three flowers.

The sentiment is from one of the SAB sets - Botanicals for you.
The leaves in the background are stamped in mint macaron, from the same stamp set as the flowers.

Does this make you think of spring? It does me...
