365 Day 81, Colour Create, ABC & JC&B

I've been able to make another couple of cards tonight whilst watching the last of this season's Lost, I can't wait for the last season...... I've been an avid fan since the beginning and it will be almost sad to see it end, but glad to get a conclusion to it (whether it will tie all the loose ends up and make sense is another matter entirely though!)

This card uses the latest sketch # 32 at Just Christmas & Birthday Cards. I used this weeks colour theme at Colour Create of Sky Blue, Tan & Ecru and tied it into the ABC Challenge this week which is O - to keep an orderly and balanced design. The sketch is perfect for that and also fulfils todays challenge for Day 81 at 365 Cards to use 5 squares.

The first square is the sky blue card blank. I have cut 4 squares of paper, the script is K & Co and the floral corner is Papermania. The circle is a K & Co paper matted onto a circle of blue card. I have inked the edges with a Tim Holtz distressing pad to grunge it up a bit and tie in the with script paper better. The flowers are an assortment of Primas with pearl buttons and a bit of waxed string knotted through them. I added a bit of Sakura glitter pen to the eyes and head plume of the birdy in the centre.

This isn't my normal style of card as the colours are more subdued than I would normally use. I think the colour pallete challenges at Colour Create will be good to get me experimenting with different colour schemes.
