Totally Ladybug Tuesday - Challenge 5 - Colour Wheel with a Twist

This week's challenge over at The Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge Blog has been set by Caz, who is our November GDT member.  It's been a great month and I really hope Caz has enjoyed herself. 

Today is Caz's turn to get her own back set the challenge and she has chosen to set a

colour wheel challenge, with a twist....

and the twist is to pick the colours you use the most and then use the colours on the opposite side of the colour wheel... eek!!

Here's what I came up with

I'm going to be quite honest and say that I found this challenge, well a challenge because I think I use colours from all over the sectrum, but I do use quite a few pinks so I went for green

Fortunately I found this paper by Cosmo Cricket that was just perfect to go with Snow Angel Nikki & Buttercup.  I found some rather lovely glittery green ribbon in my stash so tied it into a big bow (loving chunky organza ribbon right now!)

Update - a little late but news that Kerry has a Christmas special on at the moment - order one stamp and you get a second half price... well it'd be rude not too with an offer like that so why not check them all out here!!

Hope you like it :-)

Great card Sue - love the papers and Nikki looks flabulous in green!

I'm like you - I use colors from the entire spectrum; but in the end, pink is one I probably use more than the others.

Love your creation; your attention to detail is sublime!
