Allsorts

Good afternoon to you all, I hope your weekend is going as planned.This card today is so out of my comfort zone, the challenge is Primary Colours and it is at ALLSORTS I am so not into bright  reds and yellows as a rule,I usually stick to pastel shades!!! but, I must say I ended up really enjoying this. Anyway my image is Mo Manning's "Lacie with Ice cream" coloured with Promarkers,the backing paper is Cuddly Buddly and a scrap of K&Co The flower is from Crafty Feeling,and gems my stash. I decided to use some rafia for a change instead of ribbon and I do like the effect.I do hope you like it.xxx


I am also entering this into
ONE STOP CRAFTS "Summer Fun"
THE SWEET STOP "Sketch"

Doreen, this is beautiful! Your foray into the world of primary colors is highly successful. You should venture in every now and then because this is such a neat card in bright colors. The raffia does add a bit of interest that ribbon might not so much. Great job.
