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. 
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

Simple, but lovely and cheerful!
