UK Scrappers 52 Card Challenge 2013 - Week 3 Colour Inspiration

Hello folks -

Catch-up mode again here. 

Week 3 - colour prompt by Nat was this lovely bright palette:

 
 
And here is the card I made from this! 
 
 
I had intended to do something quite different, but couldn't go past this paper when I found it in my scraps bag. 
 
I thought it was quite amazing that one piece of paper from ki memories precisely contained all those exact colours!  I pulled out some of my favourites to use as accents.  That background paper is so old, but the lovely bright colours never date, in my opinion. 
 
Quite a simple card to pull together - I found the colourful circles on a piece of BG "Romani" paper that was in my scraps bag - funny, I had forgotten how they renamed the range half-way through!  I still remember it as Gypsy.  I just punched out the circles with my 1/2 inch circle punch, dusted the insides with Stardust Stickles, and then added some extra gems afterwards. 
 
Supplies:
ki memories "Colourful Simple Stripe"
BG Romani "Bohemian"
Coredinations cardstock
Framelits "Zig Zag Circles"
MFT Die-namics "Leafy Flourish"
Watermelon fabric flowers
1/2 inch circle punch
Stardust Stickles
Papermania



Simple, but lovely and cheerful!
