I love the bright, zingy colours incorporated with the grey! So I did some stash hunting (not that it takes very long) and pulled some bits out.
I have sort of managed all the colours, with the exception of the grey - there was navy in the patterned paper I used, so that is near enough.
I am not happy with this card, but it is finished. I would have preferred more colour pop with a solid colour patterned paper background - but it's the best I felt I could do with the stash I had to hand.
By choosing a dotty border Project Life card, and an orange chevron pattern in the paper which covered the chipboard, I have more or less got the spots and chevrons covered ... I tried to add some colour by outlining the paper with a berry red Promarker. By outlining that and the stars with Glossy Accents, I've added some slight dimension and a sheen which emulates the enamel embellishments that are currently the rage.
It's funny how things look different when you buy them online. I bought these Bo Bunny sticker alpha letters, and didn't like most of the fonts on the sheet when it arrived. So I decided to get them used, and this card is the start of it.
Not every challenge will suit the stash I've got and the lack of current inspiration certainly won't make up the shortfall! If my cards continue to sell as well as they did before Christmas, I can perhaps justify some small purchases to get a few more tools to hand temporarily. Until we are more settled, I will continue to play along whilst I can because crafting is bring some small semblance of normality to my life, in any case.

Lovely to see how differently the theme is interpreted by all the participants! It's the most interesting part of taking part in the challenge and a great future source of inspiration ....
